    Always. The point is to get a comprehensive list on the topic.

    When I have everything on this topic (that I have on hand) included I still have Pearl Harbor and the US run-up to war lists to do. Then "General Reading". I'm a bit slowed down by the fact that I can only carry one book at a time.

    Yeah, on the table here, for the second round. Also "Day of the Bomb" and Paul Ham's accusatory "Hiroshima Nagasaki".

    OP, is there anything that talks in detail about the disentangling of Japanese power throughout Asia in the wake of the war's conclusion? As in dates when the allies moved in, allied units involved, disarming Japanese troops, moving Japanese settlers and businesses back to Japan, complications, criminals attempting to exploit the chaos, details on handing over to local authorities, etc?
