Giangreco The dropping of as many as nine atom bombs behind the landing beaches and troop concentrations inland Sixth Army would secure airfields and anchorages needed to launch the second stage Operation Coronet five hundred miles to the north in 1946 The decisive Coronet invasion of the industrial heartland of Japan through the Tokyo Plain would be led by the Eighth Army as well as the First Army which had previously pummeled its way across France and Germany to defeat the Nazis These facts are well known and have been recounted with varying degrees of accuracy in a variety of books and art. This is a data rich account of the plans resources strategies and preparations on both Japanese and US sides for the inevitable unavoidable invasions of Japan Kyushu followed by the final invasion of the Tokyo plains on Honshu Truman s decision to nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki ended the war unexpectedly There is a lot of revisionist history critical of Truman s decision and arguing that it was not necessary revisionist and wrong Monthly casualties in Japanese held territories alone were over 400000 per month The US expected to war to last throughout 1946 perhaps into 1947 The US suffered almost 14 million casualties in WWII over one million of them between June 1944 and August 1945 Yet a partial demobilization was politically forced upon the US following the German surrender that reduced US troop strengths by nearly 50% even as troop reuirements were increasing in the PacificBased on intelligence estimates of Japanese resources and preparations on Kyushu it was estimated that US casualties would be on the order of 500000 in the first 90 days but that intelligence was wrong Japan had two to three times the numbers of troops suicide planes and boats ammunition fuel and defensive fortification they intended to replay Okinawa on a grand scale including millions of civilian suicide attackers The Japanese had learned a great deal about American war doctrine and practice and they prepared accordingly The Honshu invasion was even bigger fully resourced desperately defended Read this book and Downfall by Richard Franks Truman s decision brought the war to an early unexpected conclusion and saved millions of lives in the process These two books make that simple fact unmistakably clear

Giangreco Icles A common theme in these works is their reliance on a relatively few declassified high level planning documents In contrast Hell to Pay examines the invasion of Japan in light of the large body of Japanese and American operational and tactical planning documents unearthed by the author in both familiar and obscure archives as well as postwar interrogations and reports that senior Japanese commanders and their staffs were ordered to produce for General MacArthur's headuarters Hell to Pay brings the political and military ramifications of the enormous casualties and loss of mater. An excellent account of the plans for Operation Downfall the planned invasion of the Japanese Home Islands Good presentation of the evolution of American plans and the countermeasures planned by the Japanese though the book is marred by egregiously bad proofreading Giangreco makes it clear that the two pronged American invasion would ve been a hard fought and difficult operation and that the Japanese would ve been a hard enemy to destroy even in those last starving months of the war He also makes it clear that based on Okinawa and Luzon the final battle on the Kanto plain envisioned by both American and Japanese planners would likely not have meant an end to fighting that in the mountains of Honshu and Kyushu hold out units might have fought on for months Hell To Pay is good military history and worth reading It is however designed not only to discuss Operation Downfall but also to be part of the whole ongoing debate about the morality of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Giangreco makes it clear that he s writing about attitudes in 2010 as much as about events in 1945 I suppose that it s inevitable though the end of the Pacific War has long since become a marker for attitudes to contemporary cultural and political issues
