In this intimate biography of Hirohito, the author clearly defines the role of Hirohito in World War II which ultimately changed the course of world history.

It provides a look at the behind-the-scenes politics and decisions leading to Pearl Harbor; and insight into General MacArthur's meeting and his relationship with the Emperor. It is also a revealing study of the Japanese people before, during and after the war. This book also explores Hirohito's life as a boy, as a young man, and finally as the Emperor who watched as the world plunged into the holocaust of a global war.
