The scars of war : Tokyo during World War II : writings of Takeyama Michio by Michio Takeyama( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Takeyama Michio, the author of Harp of Burma, was thirty-seven in 1941, the year of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Husband, father of children born during the war, and teacher at Japan's elite school of higher education in Tokyo, he experienced the war on its home front. His essays provide us with a personal record of the bombing of Tokyo, the shortage of food, the inability to get accurate information about the war, the frictions between civilians and military and between his elite students and other civilians, the mobilization of students into factory jobs and the military, and the relocation of civilians out of the Tokyo area. This account of the "scars of war," including personal anecdotes from Takeyama's students and family, is one of very few histories from this unique vantage point. Takeyama's writings educate readers about how the war affected ordinary Japanese and convey his thoughts about Japan's ally Germany, the Tokyo War Crimes Trial, and the immediate postwar years."--Jacket

"Un régiment de l'Armée Impériale japonaise est en déroute au milieu de la jungle birmane quelques jours après la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Parmi les soldats se trouve Mizushima, un joueur de harpe qui ravive le moral des hommes et sert d'éclaireur grâce à son instrument. Lors d'une halte dans un village, le régiment est cerné par les troupes britanniques. Afin d'éviter un massacre, le capitaine Inoue ordonne à ses hommes de chanter pour signifier leur pacifisme. Les soldats japonais peuvent ainsi se rendre sans violence. Mizushima se voit alors chargé de convaincre un groupe de résistants, réfugiés dans la montagne, de se livrer aux Anglais. L'opération est un échec et le joueur de harpe est laissé pour mort.
