I'm trying to avoid Reischauer-esque pro-Emperor Hirohito propaganda... just honest story-telling from Japan's entrance to war-time atrocities to individual theatres and battles, and finally the atomic bomb, surrender, and occupation. I'd much rather read several more topic-specific books than a general history overview, but one or two overall narratives of the war might be okay too.
