    This is an eye-opening view of Hirohito's life and times.  Having just read the history of Japan, I was curious about how involved the emperor was in the awful fighting that took place between the world wars and during WWII.  Hirohito waffled between fear (of his military leaders) and ignoring (the worst) and urging the military along.  It is not hard to see how easily the military overran this man.  I am still shocked that Hirohito did not stand trial for war crimes (particularly for the Nankin This is an eye-opening view of Hirohito's life and times.  Having just read the history of Japan, I was curious about how involved the emperor was in the awful fighting that took place between the world wars and during WWII.  Hirohito waffled between fear (of his military leaders) and ignoring (the worst) and urging the military along.  It is not hard to see how easily the military overran this man.  I am still shocked that Hirohito did not stand trial for war crimes (particularly for the Nanking Massacre). However, I WAS shocked to see that the perpetrators of Nanking, especially Unit 731, were never prosecuted but were granted immunity and RECRUITED TO THE US TO CONDUCT FURTHER RESEARCH AND SHARE THE FINDINGS OF THEIR EXPERIMENTS.  I can understand General MacArthur, having spent so much time in Japan and Asia would believe that the Japanese people needed their emperor (and thus did not prosecute him).  However, what on earth were the other Americans doing allowing the Nanking disaster to go unpunished?   I've read recently that the US also welcomed into the US a variety of the worst of the Nazis of the Holocaust.  Unbelievable.

    The book goes into his life from the start onwards. He was the grandson of an Emperor and became one himself. He was subject to a couple of assassination attempts and what amounted to a coup attempt right at the end of World War II.

He was the grandson of an Emperor and became one himself. He was subject to a couple of assassination attempts and what amounted to a coup attempt right at the end of World War II. The book goes through things happening during his life including the Russo-Japanese War, the invasion of China and World War II. There has been some question about how much he actually knew and approved of the invasion of China and the Japanese attacks during World War II and this book makes a good case that he knew quite a bit about these things and either gave his approval openly or just let things happen on their own. The invasion of China was a horrible event with some things like the Rape of Nankingwhere tens of thousands of Chinese were murdered by Japanese soldiers and this doesn't count the looting and the raping of women. He also signed off on executive orders which directly led to abuses. There was also Unit 731 which was basically an even worse experimental place on humans that the Nazis actually came up with. Then there was Pearl Harbor and the entire World War II in the Pacific Ocean area with again many innocent people being murdered by the Japanese. Their Japanese propaganda was also so effective that when the Allies invaded Okinawa many civilians leapt to their death rather than surrender to the Americans. The Allies were getting ready to do an attempt on the Japanese main island but the atomic bombs were used first. Two cities were hit before the Emperor finally gave his approval of a surrender even though some of his own military leaders wanted the war to continue. There weren't many Japanese tried for their war crimes. Unit 731 people should have all been executed for what they did but they weren't since the Alllies made a deal in order to get the results of their experiments. The main Japanese leader, Hirohito, was also not held accountable for his role in the invasion of China and what went on there or for World War II as such, the reason being the Allies were concerned that the Japanese people would cause major problems if that happened. The book was well written and, to me, makes a good case that Hirohito should have been held accountable in some way for his approval of what went on.

    A Setting Sun A testament to the Japanese people to be able twice to build Japan into an international economic power. After reading the battles for Europe, I better able to understand the delay of D-day. The shear magnitude of the destruction and loss of life in WW2 is difficult to imagine.

    Loved this Wowwwwww!!! Hirohito was one that really interested me. I was 16 when he passed but I knew he was a controversial world figure. Now that I know why, I cannot stand the man. However, what an awesome piece. Congratulations on sucking me right in with his story. Well written. Overjoyed. Thank you!!

    Good Read This short history is a good overview of the life of the Emperor. It is informative and would cause a person to do further study into the life, the culture and subsequent politics of Japan.

    Hats off to hourly history. Another good ebook. Hirohito should have been tried as a war criminal after he gave assent to so many atrocities against the Chinese in Nanking. Definitely US must have had vested interests.

    Was Emperor Hirohito A War Criminal? I learned a great deal about Emperor Hirohito’s life in this short and concise biography. I believe he was a war criminal but he was needed by the Allies to maintain peace in Japan for the US Occupation Forces.

    Very informative Emporer Hirihito is almost never mentioned in the history of the 20th century, yet his reign in Japan changed everything about our history. Could any Japanese leader have stood up to their military?

    Could not finish The truth hurts, and this sickened me. I stopped reading after the immunity deal was made, and the United States wanted the results of their grotesque experiments on human beings.
