Professors Yamanouchi & Quinn offer a much needed corrective to the five-decade old demonization of the Japanese . These are sad voices, the now stilled voices of tragedy

Professors Yamanouchi & Quinn offer a much needed corrective to the five-decade old demonization of the Japanese soldier. This evocative, poetic, and compelling collection of soldiers' letters strikes down the dusty image of Japan's warriors as mindless, unthinking fanatics. These are sad voices, the now stilled voices of tragedy. Overall, an insight into war and the human spirit that rivals such western classics as "The Red Badge of Courage" or "All Quiet on the Western Front". Generations often forget the 'sins' of the past. Reading this book - now in English - may just remind us to avoid the trajedy of war at all costs. 38 people found this helpful.

When this volume first appeared in Japan almost exactly a half century ago, the impact was immediate and dramatic. It became the psychological wellspring for the Japanese postwar peace movement. One person it deeply influenced was Dr. Midori Yamanouchi, who resolved to finally make it more widely available by translating it into English with the help of Joseph Quinn, S.J. It is a deeply moving collection of diaries written by young Japanese soldiers who gave their lives in a series of battles going from China, through the Pacific to the skies closer to Japan. Many of them were cultivated young university students, full of life and dreams, reflecting on the beauty of life, the love of their families and the painful duty that was their lot. Most moving, in the latter part of the book, are the thoughts of the kamikaze pilots, especially those drafted into the suicide squadron in its last desperate stages.

Just got this last week. I have finished it already! I had trouble putting it down. The letters & poems reveal the feelings of soldiers & kamikaze pilots, as they are expected to fight to the death. Most of the letters & poems to sent to their families in candlesine ways. Without using the normal mail where the sensors would have destroyed most of what they wrote or made them rewrite them to fit the expected norm type of letter saying how happy & glad they were to die for the emperor & Japan. These letters & poems are full of contempt & disapproval of their military & government & what they were doing to Japan. Mostly they write of their love for their families. The letters are very sad! But they reveal that the Japanese soldiers, especially the kamikaze were not crazy, doped up people like was believed at the time & since. If you are trying to understand them than this book is for you. Read it with an open mind. Great book! I highly recommend it!

It gave me the information and the feel of these individuals souls which was very useful for the research project I was working on.

One of the best Pacific War stories told by the people who had to be there.

Each story captures your soul and makes you wonder why we even had to fight.

The saddest thing of all is that war still goes on somewhere in this world and that young people are still being killed just like the ones in the book.

This book must be read by as many people as possible, so perhaps we learn something and war will never start again.

I wonder when we, the human beings, will stop fighting and begin talking, negotiating...

There are books like this for the US as well as Germany soldiers. And, they are equally powerful.

It is said: People who never learn from the past will repeat the same mistakes all over again.

Ever since this book was originally published in 1949, four years after the end of the World War II, it has been one of the best sellers in Japan, even to this day.

Professors Yamanouchi & Quinn offer a much needed corrective to the five-decade old demonization of the Japanese soldier. This evocative, poetic, and compelling collection of soldiers' letters strikes down the dusty image of Japan's warriors as mindless, unthinking fanatics. In this volume we discover an entirely new and fresh insight into the mind-set and attitudes of young sailors, soldiers, and airmen who died in the service of Japan. The reader cannot help but be impressed by the sensitivity of these young men, by their literary yearnings, by their touching hopes for their families and futures, by the lyrical portraits they paint of even the grim and dangerous settings to which the war brought them. No little debt is owed to the editors for their masterful translation of these letters into useful and understandable American idiom. This is a rare and unforgettable reading experience which illuminates once again the common threads which bind humanity.

Dr. Midori Yamanouchi's translation of this post World War II collection of letters is brilliant. The work is a deeply moving collection of diaries written by young Japanese soldiers who gave their lives in a series of battles going from China, through the Pacific to the skies closer to Japan.
