Fluent in Japanese, Roger Dingman draws on extensive archival sources and interviews in Japan and America to tell why this error occurred, what the U.S. Navy and the two governments did to put the disaster behind them, and how radically different American and Japanese public memories of the Pacific war emerged from it. He shows how competition between American and Japanese would-be salvagers of the ship and the treasure it allegedly carried led to the perpetuation of contradictory and flawed understandings of the war.
