Summary
America has dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.But Japan has only begun to fight. . . .In 1945, history has reached a turning point. A terrible new weapon has been unleashed. Japan has no choice but to surrender. But instead, the unthinkable occurs. With their nation burned and shattered, Japanese fanatics set in motion a horrifying endgame–their aim: to take America down with them.In Robert Conroy's brilliantly imagined epic tale of World War II, Emperor Hirohito's capitulation is hijacked by extremists and a weary United States is forced to invade Japan as a last step in a war that has already cost so many lives. As the Japanese lash out with tactics that no one has ever faced before–from POWs used as human shields to a rain of kamikaze attacks that take out the highest-value target in the Pacific command–the invasion's success is suddenly in doubt. As America's streets erupt in rioting, history will turn on the acts of a few key players from the fiery front lines to the halls of Washington to the shadowy realm of espionage, while a mortally wounded enemy becomes the greatest danger of all.Praise for Robert Conroy's 1901"Likely to please both military history and alternative history buffs . . . The writing . . . keeps us turning the pages."–Booklist"Fascinating . . . skillfully crafted."–Oakland Press"Packed with action."–Detroit NewsFrom the Trade Paperback edition
