[edit] Information

From the Japanese perspective: Why did Japan go to war? What was the Japanese strategy? What was the Japanese objective? What was it like to live in Japan during the years of victory — and the years of complete devastation?

Combines still and moving image archives, personal accounts, expert interviews, contemporary images, and graphics and animation to give insight into how Japan succeeded in rapidly establishing one of the largest empires the world has ever seen. We also find out why utter devastation followed and what it meant to be Japanese during those tumultuous years.
