    review Battleship Yamato: Of War Beauty and Irony ì PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Battleship Yamato, Of War, Beauty and IronyAn odd little book from a great writer this tells a somewhat garbled version of the end of the YAMATO in 1945 overlaid with some broader musing on war and other ironies You can read this is perhaps 10 12 minutes Nu

    review Battleship Yamato: Of War Beauty and Irony ì PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Battleship Yamato, Of War, Beauty and IronyAn elegiac allegorical lament on the futility of war and its wasteful sacrifice This is a uickly paced intense beautifully illustrated book on the death and the silliness of mass hysteria told through the lens of observers from afar Was any of it worthwhile No in this reader's humble opinion but read it for yourself it won't take very long In short a triumph by one of the world's greatest writers

    review Battleship Yamato: Of War Beauty and Irony ì PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Battleship Yamato, Of War, Beauty and IronyIf you want a book that is a useful reference on the Yamato as I had you will likely be disappointed by this rather lyrical musing on the nature of the largest battleship ever built However if you're interested in an almost Zen approach to a book on military hardware one long on philosophy and short on facts and figures this book is for you I was not originally pleased by this book but on further reflection it does offer an uniue approach to discussing Japan's premiere capital ship

    review Battleship Yamato: Of War Beauty and Irony ì PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Battleship Yamato, Of War, Beauty and IronyThe story of this ship has been covered in much greater detail elsewhere but this short book perhaps does the best of portraying the ship as a metaphor for Japanese participation in World War Two The detonation on the cover even resembles the nuclear explosions at the war's conclusion Some readers will note parallels to the loss of the RMS Titanic I will keep this book as a remin

    review Battleship Yamato: Of War Beauty and Irony ì PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Battleship Yamato, Of War, Beauty and IronyThis uite short book is not so much about the ship itself but rather what might have been the human story of the crew on the finalmission to challenge the American invasion of OkinawaThe Yamato was accompanied by a number of destroyers but crucially had no air cover and had to rely on ship board anti aircraft artilleryAt her final refit in January to April 1945 for instance she had her close in 25 mm cannon armament increased to 152 gunsThe US Navy carrier based aircraft onslaught destroyed the world's greatest battleship with many bomb and torpedo strikesA couple of proof reading slips page 62 suggesting the main 18 inch guns fire at 75 per minute and page 67 suggesting that Yamato had eleven vast 18 inch gunsIf the reader is really interested in the battleship itself a book The Battleship Yamato by Janusz Skulski is a magnificent point of reference trouble is at £30 it

    review Battleship Yamato: Of War Beauty and Irony ì PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Battleship Yamato, Of War, Beauty and IronyThis is a uniue and reflective musing essay call it what you will on the ultimate futility of war and evoking the sense of fruitless if stirring sacrifice of the loss of the world`s largest battleship in the dying days of the Second World War It`s brief less than an hours read and I suspect that if Jan Morris wasn`t a beloved literary icon now in her 90s this work of self indulgence would not have see light of day As it stands this is reflection of war beauty and ironywill be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys her work or is looking for something a little out of the ordinary

    review Battleship Yamato: Of War Beauty and Irony ì PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Battleship Yamato, Of War, Beauty and IronyI was hoping for a very different book and did not get it I have uite a few books by this author and have enjoyed them all The problem with this one is that if you are expecting any detailed information about the design service history and so on then you will be disappointed The second point is that although beautifully produced the book is so short you could easily finish it within the hour
