9781770461512: Showa 1939-1944: A History of Japan (Showa: A History of Japan)

A master cartoonist and war vet details Japan's involvement in World War II

Showa 1939-1944: A History of Japan continues the award-winning author Shigeru Mizuki's autobiographical and historical account of Showa-era Japan. This volume covers the final moments of the lead-up to World War II and the first few years of the Pacific War, and is a chilling reminder of the harshness of life in Japan during this highly militarized epoch.
Mizuki writes affectingly about the impact on the Japanese populace of world-changing moments, including the devastating Second Sino-Japanese War, the attack on Pearl Harbor, and the first half of the Pacific War. On a personal level, these years mark a dramatic transformation in Mizuki's life, too. His idyllic childhood in the countryside comes to a definitive end when he's drafted into the army and shipped off to the tiny island of Rabaul in Papua New Guinea. His life becomes a constant struggle for survival, not only against the constant Allied attacks but against the harsh discipline of the Japanese army officers. During his time in Rabaul, Mizuki comes to understand the misery and beauty of the island itself, a place that will permanently mark him and haunt him for the rest of his life.

About the Author:

Born March 8, 1922 in Sakaiminato, Tottori, Japan, Shigeru Mizuki is a specialist in stories of yokai and is considered a master of the genre. He is a member of the Japanese Society of Cultural Anthropology, and has traveled to more than sixty countries around the world to engage in fieldwork on the yokai and spirits of different cultures. He has been published in Japan, South Korea, France, Spain, Taiwan, and Italy. His award-winning works include Kitaro,Nonnonba, and Onward Towards Our Noble Deaths. Mizuki's four-part autobiography and historical portrait Showa: A History of Japan won an Eisner Award in 2015.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up—Renowned manga artist Mizuki's autobiographical graphic novel series continues where Showa: A History of Japan, 1926–1939 (Drawn & Quarterly, 2013) left off, with Japan on the brink of World War II. The narrative recounts the war years, shifting between pivotal events in the Pacific theater and the author's personal anecdotes. Though this volume is slightly less whimsical than the first, there is quite a bit of humor as Mizuki balances serious scenes of battle and politics with cartoonish depictions of his antics bumbling through a newspaper delivery route, trade school, and service in Japan's army. The work is often critical of Japan's wartime actions. However, certain controversial issues such as the Bataan death march and the role of "comfort women" receive less attention than a Western author might give them, providing an opportunity for valuable discussion about bias and perspective. This account puts a very human face on a complicated time in history. Readers can easily jump into this installment without having read its predecessor, and military buffs will be especially riveted by the detailed account of naval battles. Those less interested in a play-by-play of warfare may find themselves skimming at times but will surely keep reading to see how Mizuki survives—and will be eager for the next volume, as this one ends on a cliff-hanger. Recommended where the first title has an audience.—Allison Tran, Mission Viejo Library, CA
