Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It seems the US is to blame for jolting the peaceful isolationist Japanese people out of their peace, causing them to compete with the West to dominate their neighbors (China, Korea, the Philippines, etc.) in their own version of Manifest Destiny, but in the most inhumane ways imaginable. Mr. Bradley dismisses this inhumanity as cultural and somehow learned from the United States. War is awful and barbaric, but the apologist will still find fault with minimizing the loss of human life if there are also collateral losses to civilians, as if such occurrences have not been a part of warfare since the dawn of human conflict.
Mr. Bradley heaps scorn on Christianity, equating the US and it’s political and military leaders with that faith, but is apparently oblivious to the differences in practicing forgiveness and mercy at a personal level (allowing ones self to be wronged) while pursuing justice for others under the responsibility of government authority.
While the history was interesting, I read it with distrust for the clear bias this author has for the Japanese and against America, and for his view of evil without an appropriate respect for God.
If you are looking for anything of an exciting revealing interesting book that about fighter pilots in general and specifically those captured its there but in paucity.
