This important book . . . Magisterial'
Every so often, a new work emerges of such immense scholarship and weight that it really does add a significant difference to our understanding of the Second World War and its consequences. Judgement in Tokyo is one such, a monumental work in both scale and detail, beautifully constructed and written, leaving the reader not only moved but disturbed as well.
The word 'monumental' is used by reviewers rather too often, but in this case it is entirely deserved . . . Outstanding and detailed . . . Compelling and deeply humane
A work of singular importance – balanced, original, human, accessible, and riveting. It is of huge relevance to our times.
