Racing the Enemy: Stalin, Truman and the Surrender of Japan

With startling revelations, Tsuyoshi Hasegawa rewrites the standard history of the end of World War II in the Pacific. By fully integrating the three key actors in the story - the United States, the Soviet Union, and Japan-Hasegawa for the first time puts the last months of the war into international perspective. From April 1945, when Stalin broke the Soviet-Japanese Neutrality Pact and Harry Truman assumed the presidency, to the final Soviet military actions against Japan, Hasegawa brings to light the real reasons Japan surrendered.

"Racing the Enemy"

In "Racing the Enemy", Hasegawa puts forward the revisionist view that the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were not decisive in the Pacific Theater of World War Two. Instead, Hasegawa looks to the breaking of the Neutrality Pact by the Soviet Union, and the imminent fall of Manchuria and Korea to Operation August Storm. [ cite web
