This is a rare memoir from a Japanese officer who survived the Battle of Iwo Jima. Major Horie was one of only four Japanese field grade officers directly associated with the Battle of Iwo Jima who survived and the only officer known to have left memeoirs. Having served as a liaison officer with the Navy, Major Horie described in detail the respective positions, ideas and assumptions that both the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy had when executing the Pacific War, the personalities involved, and the challenges they faced. Fighting Spirit is an annotated translation of the memoirs of Major Horie, co-edited by a USMC veteran of the Battle of Iwo Jima and an American academic who is a specialist on U.S.-Japan relations. In addition to the original chapters of Horie's work, the book includes an Editors' Preface, providing biographical information on Major Horie and the context of the book, and two appendices of materials prepared by Major Horie shortly after the end of the war.
