第一章 日本が敗れる日まで

 日本はなぜ対米戦争を戦ったのか?

 昨年は敗戦から70年目でしたが、相変わらず侵略であったのか、日本はどう反省すべきであったのか、といったことが大真面目で議論されていました。

 しかし、あの大戦争は世界史的な視野の下で、日本の置かれた状況、開戦に至った事情、理由、そしてその果たした役割、といったものを広く検討していかないとその本質を理解することはできないのです。

 加瀬英明氏(本会会長)は、このような視点から「大東亜戦争」が実は世界を大きく変える歴史的な快挙(一言で言えば、人種差別撤廃に向けた巨大な前進)を成し遂げたことを本書で解明しております。

 一章ごとに紹介していきます。今回は初回、第一章です。

The Greater East Asian War: How Japan Changed The World
By Kase Hideaki
(Published by KK Bestseller in Japanese, 2015)
Chapter 1 – Up to the Day Japan Surrendered

The Greater East Asian War (the so-called Pacific War) is generally perceived as Japan’s “war of aggression”.
Mr. Kase, Chairman of Society for the Dissemination of Historical Fact, presents in this book a completely different, diametrically opposite view—that the war broke down the long entrenched Western global colonial system and played a key role in promoting racial equality around the world.
The usual, knee-jerk “revisionist” label will be cast concerning this point of view. The term “revisionist” has been frequently used by Marxists. German SDP reformist Eduard Bernstein was accused of being a “revisionist” by orthodox Marxists—with their doctrine entirely collapsing with the fall of the Soviet Union. It is bizarre that “revisionist,” a dogmatic, Marxist term, is still used today to label non-orthodox historical views.
The 31st President of the US, Herbert Hoover, wrote a great work over a period of 20 years, Freedom Betrayed (Hoover Institution Press, Stanford University, 2011). In this book, Hoover stated: “I said that the whole Japanese war was a madman’s [FDR] desire to get into war. He [General MacArthur] agreed.” (p. 833) So should former US President Hoover be accused of being a “revisionist”?
“Revisionist” or not, he nonetheless corrects the outrageously distorted prevailing historical view. The “revisionist” historian is a methodical historian.
The English translation of Mr. Kase’s book will be serialized. This link is to Chapter 1.
