Fortress 99. In 1945, with her fleet destroyed and her armies beaten, the only thing that stood between Japan and an Allied invasion was the numerous coastal defense positions that surrounded the islands. This is the first book to take a detailed look at the Japanese home island fortifications that were constructed during 1941-45. Utilizing diagrams, specially commissioned artwork, and sources previously unavailable in English, examines these defenses in the context of a possible Allied invasion, constructing various arguments for one of the greatest 'what if' scenarios of WWII, and helping to explain why the Americans decided to go ahead with a nuclear option; 64 pages.
