The Diary of Adm. Matome Ugaki, 1941-1945
By (author) Donald M. Goldstein
Fading Victory by Donald M. Goldstein
Book DescriptionLong out of print, theses wartime diaries of a key admiral of the Imperial Japanese Navy, provide a revealing inside look into the Japanese view of the Pacific War. Matome Ugaki was chief of staff of the Combined Fleet under Admiral Isoroki Yamamoto until both were shot down over Bougainville in April 1943, resulting in Yamamoto's death. He later served as commander of battleship and air fleets, finally directing the kamikaze attacks off Okinawa. Invaluable for its details of the Japanese navy at war, the diaries offer a running appraisal of the fighting and are augmented by editorial commentary that proves especially useful to American readers eager to see the war from the other side. When first published in 1991, this dairy was hailed as a major contribution to World War II literature as the only firsthand account of strategic planning for the entire war by a Japanese commander.

Way it Was - Pearl Harbor, Paperback (April 1995)» View all books by Donald M. Goldstein
At long last, the familiar and overused photographs of the "Day of Infamy" can be retired. The 430 prints in this new and welcome collection were gathered from various Japanese and US sources, and most have never been seen by the general public. The majority were taken during the height of the air raid itself, many from Japanese cockpits.
