The invasion of Japan : alternative to the bomb by John Ray Skates( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with a brief overview of DOWNFALL, Skates analyzes the evolution of the invasion plan. He describes in detail the two phases of the plan, Operations OLYMPIC and CORONET; he assesses the strength of Japanese defenses; and discusses other topics that would influence an invasion - redeployment from Europe, Allied participation in the invasion, and the possible use of special weapons, especially gas. Among other revisionist findings, his research reveals a weaker state of Japanese preparedness than historians have commonly presumed and he demonstrates that the joint chiefs never objectively compared the bombing and the invasion. Significantly, Skates finds no evidence suggesting that military strategists projected casualty figures as high as those cited after the bomb's use
