Abstract

A young boy comes of age during and after World War II, revealing how some Japanese questioned militarism and the war given their loss and devastation. When a Tokyo family flees to the countryside, the young son stays behind to pursue his military schooling. Frightened by the air raids, he joins them. There, his father's pacifism makes the family outcasts during and after the war. The son eventually sees his father's side by the early 1950s.
