The 'Yamato' was the biggest battleship ever built, Japan's proudest technological achievement, robust, heavily armed and armored, indestructable almost. In 1945 she was ordered to engage, without air cover, the American fleet attacking Okinawa. "The result," the author says,"offers some insights into the agonising dilemma of a misguided, courageous people who persisted in continuing a hopeless war.
