Of The Key Events of the war The Bataan Death March receives little than two frames and an aside from Mizuki that as horrific as it was the death toll was as much to do with the heat and general Japanese unpreparedness to deal with POWs as anything The Brother-Offended Checklist particularly evil And Comfort Women sexual slavery receives just a fleeting reference on oneageBut don t get me wrong Mizuki is no revisionist He s relaying the war through his experiences He has undisguised contempt for the architects of war and has no time for jingoism He s just trying to explain what happened oint to where it all went wrong and get the hell out of the firing linePulp the textbooks and replace them

Highly militarized epoch Mizuki writes affectingly about the impact on the Japaneseopulace of world changing moments including the devastating Second Sino Japanese War the attack on Pearl Harbor and the first half of the Pacific War On a ersonal level these years mark a dramatic transformation in Mizuki’s life too His idyllic childhood in the countryside comes to a definitive end when he’s draf. This series is just all sorts of good If we didn t know there were further volumes in the series we d be tempted to call the ending of this book a cliffhanger It s a little known fact that Mizuki actually erished in WWII but came back as a zombie which explains the longevity of a zombie which explains the longevity of career and his redilection for tales of yokai and other ghoulish subjects All kidding aside I find this Japanese view of the war fascinating On to volume 3 I really love these titles from both a literary erspective and for their historical account The combination of memoir history
humor make it I warmed very slowly to the first volume of this historical manga but after a few ages of this second one I was hooked The combination of a cartoony style in the most The Agile Team Handbook, 2nd Edition personal sections and hyperrealistic black and white reproductions for the historicalassages works wonders once the war starts The author s sarcastic no nonsense approach to the idiocy of war reminded me of classics like Tardi s Putain de guerre and Remarue s All is uiet on the Western Front I ll be buying the next Her Mothers Daughter part of the series immediately My eldest is going through junior high school in Japan and I was happy to hear she was studying aspects of the Second World War As far as I can tell from her textbook and I could well be missing something those aspects are the Nazis and the Holocaust and that s about itTo be fair there was no room on the doubleage spread covering the war to refer to any Howard Stern Comes Again part Japan had tolay in it I suppose talking about genocide in Germany is distressing enough for 12 year olds without bringing up Japan s less than auspicious Spellbound past in Nanking or its own mini genocide inflicted on the Chinese by Unit 731 Much easier to start with the Nazis and Anne Frank and all that The trouble is I doubt it will develop into much introspection which would be fascinating if not to my daughter then at least to her old manSo I don t look to Japan s schools to learn much about the war That s what comic books are forI enjoyed the English translation of the first instalment of Shigeru Mizuki s Showa manga covering 1926 1939 so I just had to get the second covering 1939 1944 You might uibble that a manga can only skirt the surface of such a momentous time and yeah it does at times feel like a school history textbook jamacked with just enough facts to tell the story.
