This is a 1970 book which is, to me, a little bit on the unusual side. From the book's cover, one would think the book is about the entire history of Japan's involved in WWII, from December of 1941 on.

Actually, it isn't that at all. The book is over 530 pages long; of that, 247 pages deal with the events in December of 1941, and the rest of the book deals with the events of August, 1945, from the dropping of the atomic bomb to the actual surrender of Japan.

There's nothing covered in between tho
