Product Description

Details

This is the only memoir available in English by a Japanese military officer who helped plan the Battle of Iwo Jima. Yoshitake Horie, a Japanese field-grade Army officer who served as a liaison officer with the Japanese Navy, was in a unique position to describe in detail the respective positions, ideas, and assumptions that both services had about the Pacific War. A specialist in logistics and head of the headquarters on Chichi Jima, Horie was intimately involved with the battle plans. His insights reveal the limits to Japan's strategy and the personalities of the planners.

Robert D. Eldridge is the deputy assistant chief of staff, G-5, Marine Corps Bases Japan, and taught at Osaka University's School of International Public Policy.

Charles W. Tatum fought in the Battle of Iwo Jima. A resident of Stockton, CA, he is the author of Red Blood, Black Sand.
