Fire in the Pacific

By Simon Harcourt-Smith

Knopf, 1942, 236 pp.

The author served in the British diplomatic service in China and in the Far Eastern Department of the Foreign Office. He is very critical of British policy towards Japan since 1930. Much of his criticism would seem to have been justified by the course of events, though his book would have profited by a careful checking of some of its facts.
