ISOROKU YAMAMOTO: GRAND ADMIRAL IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY (45 Min., Color)
This early 1970s British/American documentary expounds upon the dramatic difference between Yamamoto as he actually was and his Allied wartime charicature. Includes interviews with those who personally knew him, including his eldest son, as well as the American airman who, years after killing Yamamoto when he shot down the plane he was a passenger in, became a great admirer of Yamamoto the man as distinguished from Yamamoto the enemy. Every student of the Second World War in general and the Asia/Pacific Theater of World War II in particular needs to see this documentary!
MEN IN CRISIS: HALSEY VS YAMAMOTO (1964)
Edmund O'Brien narrates an installment of the definitive "opponent vs opponent" documentary series, which explores Japanese Admiral Yamamoto's titanic struggle over control of the Pacific with American Admiral "Bull" Halsey during World War II.
BETWEEN THE WARS - AMERICA IN THE PACIFIC: THE CLASH OF TWO CULTURES (25 Min., Color)
Though the quality of the archival copy from which this DVD title was recorded was very poor, the quality of the documentary itself is very excellent and a gem within the 8000+ hours of video in the EarthStation1.com archives. Narrated by the greatly credible American journalist Eric Severeid, himself a World War II radio correspondent, it makes clear from the beginning that the bigoted nature of American diplomacy in the years before World War II had a direct relation to the rise of militarist rule in Japan which ultimately lead to Pearl Harbor. Did you know that the pivotal moment in the rise of Japan's militarist clique was the 1924 American anti-immigration laws that prevented Japanes from emigrating here simply because they were Japanese? There are more suprises here both for Japanese and American students of history!
FROM ENEMY TO ALLY (15 Min., B&W)
1969 Heart newsreel short subject on the political and economic rise of Japan from the ashes of World War II, the rule of General MacArthur, land reform (the only peaceful land reform to take place in all of 20th century Asia), the secularization of the Imperial family's status and, most importantly, the institution and maintenance of good relations between America and Japan.
