This is a comprehensive coverage of post war developments.Called a biography by some.It is clouded by language obfuscation and the lack of any candid informants post war.Bix indulges in the intricacies of Japanese language,though eventually revealing secrecy and secret Shinto support,rob veracity.
2013 Japan Times,all Imperial pronouncements are put through rescription,and an interpretation from an Imperial language.to newspaper.Always this is in a stilted poor English to emphasise that Japs are more clever by half.they refer to the Jap history as “the Hirohito book”.its release of the last volume delayed for nine years.
BIX defers to William Manchester,American Caesar,and so no finality on code breaking,Manchester hints of an inside informant from go.AWA had an office building overlooking the palace and IJA.Manchester states that the Imperial orders were obvious,with Hirohito directly ordering evacuation of troops from Manus.McArthur never bothered to read Hirohitos account of the war,volunteered by Hirohito,he knew from day one that Yoshida had colluded with the emperor to conceal the truth.
The last Potsdam conference agreed to allow the Soviets joint occupation of Japan,and joint courts to hear war crimes.the agreement was not honoured.Some even think that China deserves a few free hits.

The one fact that sticks in my gullet is Hirohito not being tried for war crimes.
Showa was the name given to him for his reign. It allegedly means 'Period of enlightened peace' !!!!
1971 Sept 26 saw the evil man even got briefly welcomed to USA by President Nixon in Alaska on a trip to Europe,
However in 1975 Sept 30 he was welcomed for two week junket meeting President Ford.
What a terrible travesty of justice for the millions murdered and raped by his military.

I will never forget providing a parade and march past in 1958 for a bemedalled German Luftwaffe General. Several WW2 veterans were among the Guards Depot soldiers who witnessed this political about turn. I would guess among his medals were one or more for his heroism in shooting down UK planes or perhaps bombing Swansea, Coventry or London. The buried cannon fodder must have stirred in their war graves across the UK.
Mind you the German people still have to put up with tens of thousands of USA military on their soil and allow stationing of nuclear weapons.

"When will they ever learn?"

The Germans,Peter Stargardt.
This covers all primary sources that were still alive,new personal memoirs and journalism of the time.
Why consider the two subjects Japan and Germany together,to see how their societies have resolved their wartime dislocations.
BIX shows Japan fluctuates from idealistic periods to suppresionist periods,of most things.Kyoto is the epicentre of traditional appeals to golden pasts,and then waves of modernists fight and politicise.
To use Japanese language and terms is to fall into the trap of an elite stepladder of language designed to obfuscate.
Japan Behind the Lines,Ben Hills 1996 ,has an account of the Japanese electoral system.THE LIAR ELECTION .McArthur reinstated 1925 electoral boundaries and gave Japan an absolutely murky system.
Large electorates electing first past the post with say 50 candidates for 46 seats.
The Emperor who called for sacrifice died of old age,Hitler who’s Reich was to last for a thousand years
Suicided.
Germany when data matching became available in the eighties found large clusters of ex nazi and party
Officials entrenched in the public service,especially the Ministry of Finance.
