review Õ Hell to Pay: Operation Downfall and the Invasion of Japan, 1945-1947 104 Icles A common theme in these works is their reliance on a relatively few declassified high level planning documents In contrast Hell to Pay examines the invasion of Japan in light of the large body of Japanese and American operational and tactical planning documents unearthed by the author in both familiar and obscure archives as well as postwar interrogations and reports that senior Japanese commanders and their staffs were ordered to produce for General MacArthur's headuarters Hell to Pay brings the political and military ramifications of the enormous casualties and loss of mater. The Last WordThis book is the last word on Operation Downfall and the decision to try the atomic bomb beforehand as a means of shocking the Japanese leadership into surrender Had Japan s militarists continued to hold sway after Hiroshima and Nagasaki the invasion of Japan would have begun with devastating losses suffered by both sidesGiangreco exposes many misconceptions about the state of Japan by the summer of 1945 He reveals that far from being out of aviation fuel for their fleets of kamikaze suicide attack suadrons the Japanese had ample stocks of fuel stored away in preparation for use during the invasion Giangreco also reveals that the apparent lack of Japanese air activity during this time was due to a deliberate husbanding of kamikzaes in preparation for attacks on the invasion fleets Giangreco also reveals the difficult defenses and terrain features the two Allied landings Operation Olympic on Kyushu and Operation Coronet on Honshu would have faced plus the inevitable delays typhoons would have caused for the launching of Olympic and Coronet Giangreco derails the revisionist argument that predicted invasion casualties were postwar fabrications designed to justify use of the atomic bomb He reveals that many casualty estimates generated during the buildup to the invasion were indeed in the 500000 range with some predicting even losses Only a scattered few projections over optimistically predicted lesser losses The book s only flaws were a scattering of typos and how some illustrations and their captions were not placed in the vicinity of the relevant parts of the chapters they appeared in These are minor flaws however and do not detract from this tour de force of research and scholarship on WWII s biggest what if After I read Eugene Sledge s

review Õ Hell to Pay: Operation Downfall and the Invasion of Japan, 1945-1947 104 Hell to Pay is a comprehensive and compelling examination of the many complex issues that encompassed the strategic plans for the proposed American invasion of Japan US planning for the invasion and military occupation of Imperial Japan was begun in 1943 two years before the dropping of atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki In its final form Operation Downfall called for a massive Allied invasion on a scale dwarfing D Day to be carried out in two stages In the first stage Operation Olympic the US Sixth Army would lead the southernmost assault on the Home Island of Kyushu preceded by. Puts the lie to recent revisionist histories of the decision to drop the atomic bomb with well researched facts taken from both American and Japanese sources Every decision involving war involves re distributing death No matter what is done or not done people will die as a result The only uestions are who how and how many Giangreco s analysis well supported by primary sources demonstrates that Truman s decision to drop the atomic bomb saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans and millions of Japanese The invasion of the home islands would have been a bloodbath of proportions that can only barely be comprehended and would have made Okinawa and Iwo Jima look like sideshows No book that says otherwise while ignoring the evidence presented here can be taken seriously as a scholarly work
