Review: End of The Beginning by Harry Turtledove.

The end of an amazing two book triumph for Harry Turtledove. The first was Days of Infamy which I already wrote a review on over a month ago. This book was extremely as great as the first if not better. I like the authors alternate history style which consists of showing life from the viewpoint of multiple characters including high officers, POWs, marine NCOs, navy pilots from both nations, and civilians allows sympathize with the Japanese even as we hope for their inevitable defeat.

Now for a year and a half since the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and won the invasion take-over of Hawaii and controlled the Islands it was time for the Americans to show their strength and power to take Hawaii back.

While the Japanese had control the native Hawaiians, most American Japanese, all Americans, and tourist suffered from hunger and very little use of freedom. Especially female civilians were treated much worse because they were secluded and used as whores for the Japanese soldiers. However, within this time span all American prisoner of war were the ones who were treated the worse. Japanese Military believe the soldiers who surrendered were worthless and they did their best to starve and work them to death. There were some graphic punishments in descriptive details done to the American military but not enough to pass this story up.

The author does an excellent job showing the Japanese justification for war while not shrinking from the horrible crimes against humanity that the Japanese systematically conducted. Also, one of the virtues of alternate history is that it lets us consider how the world might have changed if different decisions had been made. Well written, understandable, and greatly recommended. Just keep in mind…“what if” and its only fiction…..
