Essential for a complete understanding of the Pacific War. Aug. 15 2015
By Stephen Jones - Published on
Verified Purchase
These four movies are invaluable for seeing WWII from the Japanese perspective. Two of them (Battle for Okinawa and Japan's Longest Day) are based on factual books of the same title. Hiromichi Yahara was a staff officer in the 32nd Army. His memoir is the basis for "Battle for Okinawa". The Pacific War Research Society produced the book, "Japan's Longest Day" which served as the basis for the movie of the same name, a docudrama of the events leading to Japan's surrender 70 years ago today. "Father of the Kamikaze" is an account of Takijiro Onishi, the titular character. I'm not aware of its provenance, though it is labeled as "the true story of the man who unleashed the kamikaze attacks." Black Rain is a fictional account of a hibakusha (people affected by the atomic bombs) caught in fallout from the Hiroshima bomb, based on a novel by Masuje Ibuse. These movies are essential for understanding the Pacific War, though in the case of the first two, the books are more complete histories.
