<Theme> The Attack on Pearl Harbor as Military History: Between the Study on Outbreak of the U.S.-Japan War and the Eyewitness Testimonies of War Veterans
<Abstract> Many scholars study political diplomacy leading to the outbreak of the war between Japan and the United States and the significance of the Hawaii Operation. They will continue to research the future. This year marks the 80th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor, namely eighty years have passed since the outbreak of the war between Japan and the United States. On the other hand, the number of people who directly experienced such a war almost becomes nonexistent. The “military history” traced from the testimonies is immobilizing these days. In this presentation, the speaker tries to find the node point of the historiographic research on military history and the various testimonies in which the speaker directly interviewed the soldiers who participated in the Hawaii Operation.
