This is the story of both an individual and an organization. The
individual is Admiral Yamamoto, the architect of the Pearl Harbor
raid and commander of the Combined Fleet until his dramatic death
in the South Pacific. One of the best-known Japanese wartime
leaders -- complex, tough, sympathetic, and realistic -- he
believed from the start that Japan was bound to lose the war. The
organization is the Imperial Navy, whose gentlemanly traditions and
international outlook contrasted strongly with those of the army.
Based on interviews with people who knew him well, private and
intimate correspondence, and secret and official documents, it is
-- as the New Yorker said -- a "brilliant" book.
