Inside Japan's War

Inside Japan’s War adds a dimension to our understanding of the Second World War in the Asia-Pacific. The series features the Japanese perspective: Why did Japan fight? What was the Japanese strategy? What was the Japanese objective? What was it like to live in Japan during the years of victory — and the years of complete devastation?

Using the chronology of the Japanese war experience as the series’ structure, Inside Japan’s War combines still and moving image archives, personal accounts, expert interviews, contemporary images, and graphics and animation to give insight into how Japan succeeded in rapidly establishing one of the largest empires the world has ever seen. And we find out why utter devastation followed, and what it meant to be Japanese during those tumultuous years. 

This is not a war story — but it is a story about war.
