The United States' involvement in World War II began with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. But for Japan, the conflict began at a much earlier date. This book focuses on Japan and the events in its military history leading up to and including Pearl Harbor. Unique in its perspective, A Gathering Darkness shows how historical events in the 1920s and 1930s steered the country into war with America and its allies.
Haruo Tohmatsu is associate professor of international relations at Tamagawa University, Tokyo. H. P. Willmott is a freelance writer and visiting lecturer at Greenwich Maritime Institute, the University of Greenwich, and, in 2004-2005, at The Citadel.
