Books online: Japan's Longest Day, 1969, Fishpond.co.nz. Japan's Longest Day The Pacific War Research Society This book is about the events that took place in Tokyo twenty four hours before the then Emperor Hirohito's voice came over the Japanese airwaves proclaiming Japan's acceptance of the Potsdam Declaration and to admonish the Japanese people to 'suffer what is unsufferable'.
The Society was a group of 14 Japanese historians who spent years interviewing every Japanese survivor involved in any way with the decision, except Hirohito. Their book was published in 1965. It was translated into English and published by Kondansha with the title Japan's Longest Day [JLD]. This is still the authoritative book on the subject. "Japan's Longest Day" is an invaluable historical resource for understanding Japanese wartime behavior, the end of the Pacific War and the decision to use nuclear weapons to end the war. Much anti-A bomb literature is premised on Japan's supposed eagerness to end the war.
