Awesome Amazing.This story is about soldiers of kamikaze attack in WW2 Written by the view of soldiers who all didn't have a choice to refuse They all had to face their death I was simply astonished by their samurai spirit I hate the word samurai spirit but I believe they were the real Japanese men: bushi This is fiction but still this story itself is based on history Good story to know WW2 in Japan. This book is not so much a novel as it is a telling of war stories of Japanese Zero fighter pilots in WWII It is also a very compelling characterization of a man, Kyuzo Miyabe, told by the survivors who knew him And it is an indictment of the the IJN's top commanders as ignorant, arrogant, foolhardy, and monstrously cruel Finally, the book discredits the notion that kamikaze pilots are akin to the fanatical suicide terrorists of today.I loved this book because I learned so much from it, and yes, it also made me cry. Have this compelling Kamikaze story been translated yet? If not, it better be soon This historical fiction about WWII warfront Japan explores to reveal the humane emotions of suicidal bombers through a touching love story my eyes got tearythan a few times, and I could not put the book down! This fiction is also like a long research paper on one controversial topic often analysed but neither adequately backed by convincing facts nor delivered through much mainstream media The author tackles to answer the question: did the Kamikaze young men wish to die? Did they really 'happily volunteer' as told later by the officials who lived? Many views are out there to answer those critical questions Naoki Hyakuta's version is one that really speaks. A remarkable story of a Zero fighter pilot, his will to live and survive the perils of being a fighter pilot in World War II The pilots grandchildren, by interviewing surviving service men who knew their grandfather begin to put the puzzle pieces of his life together Some remembered him as one of the greatest pilots in the war and others branded him a coward The power of the novel is the discovery of their truth and how his death as a kamikaze pilot ultimately brought life to those he left behind. Every few years I find a novel that is truly astonishing Of these rare finds, most are by authors that I have never heard of and many of the books are about subjects I had never explored through fiction This was one of those books Eternal Zero is the best book I have read in 2017 Originally written in Japanese, the English version was published in 2015 Eternal Zero by Naoki Hyakuta was amazing It follows a clever storyline with a brother and sister researching their grandfather, Kyuzo Miyabe Miyabe died a Kamikaze pilot near the end of the war This book gives the reader some amazing insights into both the sensibilities of modern Japan and the motives and ambitions of the people who fought for Imperial Japan Many reviewers have thought that this book has whitewashed Japan's past in not connecting the characters to war crimes Others have felt that this book is a simplistic antiwar novel Actually, I believe the term antiwar book is overused I would have a hard time identifying a book of general readership that is prowar, but I am getting off track.I have thought quite a bit about how I wanted to write this review but somehow I do not feel that I can do the novel justice It is simply amazing.The only thing that I could identify as a slight annoyance, and it is probablyan issue in the translation rather than the work itself, is the language and phrases seemed Americanized A few examples; study their heads off, riled up, doing his damnedest, hanging out I cannot imagine Imperial Japanese service men speaking like cowpokes from Dodge I hope thatwork is done on translating the text and take heart when I think of how many years and translations have been done on the works of Tolstoy and Hugo.This is a tremendous work and would recommend it to anyone interested in the Japan or the War in the Pacific. Rating: 3.5When I closed my eyes I noticed the buzzing of cicadas It was the first time I found their cries beautiful And I thought that seven summers later, the cicadas' offspring would sing in just the same way When I wondered what Japan would be like then, I was filled with great sorrow.The Eternal Zero is a rather unique novel in which it compresses oral history in the form of a narrative as the main character, Kentaro, attempts to learnabout his long deceased grandfather who died as a kamikaze pilot in the Second World War The novel offers a set of fresh perspectives about the war, specifically regarding the suicidal operations of the kamikaze pilots Hyakuta picks apart the reality of the war situation—from the structural issues of the Imperial Navy to the psyche of the pilots That said, The Eternal Zero falls short in terms of artistic expression As Kentaro and Keiko interviewed person to person in documenting historical information about Miyabe, their grandfather, the words embedded a highly detailed, chronicled writing style which was tedious and uninspiring to read at times Thus, I would recommend this bookto those who are interested in cold hard facts about the war Less for leisure, recreationalseeking readers such as me.Overall, I did still enjoy the book thoroughly and even cried a number of times Seeing how small the lives of the pilots mattered to the Imperial Navy—easily discarded and constantly undervalued—broke my heart The intestinal fortitude of Kyuzo Miyabe and the love he possessed for his wife and daughter, often portrayed as two sides of the same coin, stirred something in me His tragic fate, in my opinion, seems to present the message that War is cruelty and you cannot refine it. What an emotion journey, switching between present day Japan, and the era of the second world war Discovering that their bloodline grandfather was a fighter pilot in the 2nd world war, a story begins digging deep into history, while some former Japanese war colleges called their grandfather a coward, this did not turn out to be true In the 1940s Japan was gripped by miliary rule with their ideology thrust upon all, Japanese miliary members were brainwashed into accepting a honorable death for their Emperor They discovered that their grandfather did not agree with this, he was determined to stay alive for his wife and child, and to adapt that attitude in the miliary climate of the 1940s was actually very brave unfortunately close to the end of the 2nd world war he died never seeing his wife or child again A great story line, one of the best 2nd World war stories that I have ever read, cannot praise it enough, this stories shows a hummanity side to a Japanese person participating in the war, who loved his wife Well written book, no editorial errors that I could find Brilliant can't say that enough. I would like to make a few points about this book (I read the Chinese translation by a Taiwanese publisher)First, though 90% of the book reads okay to good, the ending sucks; it introduces a cheesy twist, which kills the mood of the entire book It is the antithesis of the book.Second, unlike what some Hong Kong reviewers claim, the book isn't antiwar The author shows no remorse for the Japanese invasion He expresses his regrets in two aspects: (1) Japanese failure to seize the opportunity to defeat the Americans when Japanese fighters were dominating; (2) Japanese refusal to surrender and bringing insacrifices when the loss was certain Third, if you are a proChina, antiwar type, don't pick this up; you will be pissed off by the rightist view portrayed in the book. At the moment, this book is only available in Japanese, but I heard that it would be translated into English soon As a peaceloving person, I’m very happy to hear that Please read it when published This is a very beautiful antiwar novel, and also a courageous one, throwing doubts on controversial issues about WW2 The author, through describing a life of a Japanese zero fighter (and his love, emotional turmoil etc.), who wanted to go back home alive but had to give up his life as a suicidal kamikaze attacker, shows sinfulness of mass media (propaganda) and highup officials as well as incompetence of the Japanese hierarchical bureaucratism at the time As a result, lots of precious lives were thrown away in the war I felt courageous because talking about any view, if not selftormenting, related to the WW2 had been regarded as taboo in Japan Therefore, old people in Japan, who experienced the war, remained silent all the time Yet, the author seems to have felt someone had to keep their records, from which we can learn a lot So, after a considerably detailed research, he wrote the story.Personally I feel this is the novel not only for the Japanese but also for the nonJapanese, especially Americans (because it also depicts preciousness of American soldiers’ lives and sadness that those young people, regardless of their nationality, had to fight due to the situation at the time) When there's a war, people tend to condemn the other side, but all, both winners and losers, are victims If we really want the peace, in my opinion, what we should do is to try to understand what brought the situation with a calm mind, to share the pain of the victims of either side, to resolve not to be fooled by propaganda and to pray for the eternal peace together I assume that's what the author aimed for By the way, this novel was turned into a movie last year So, I’ll put its trailer here: However 2 hours is not enough to represent all messages in the novel, so I would like you to read it when published :) ^FREE BOOK ⇲ 永遠の0 [Eien No Zero] ⇻ Popular Books, 永遠の0 [Eien No Zero] By Naoki Hyakuta This is very good and becomes the main topic to read, the readers are very takjup and always take inspiration from the contents of the book 永遠の0 [Eien No Zero], essay by Naoki Hyakuta Is now on our website and you can download it by register what are you waiting for?
