The first section of this chapter describes the final War Cabinet of Imperial Japan. It examines the political difficulties of the Koiso–Yonai govemment, the impact of the Emperor and Marquis Kido, Admiral Baton Suzuki's opinions and position, the collapse of Germany and the Soviet option, and the true position of Japan. The second section describes the Gunreibu plans for the decisive battle for the homeland, the vulnerability of Japan to air attack, and the choice of the IGHQ not to defend the civilian population. The last section examines the Imperial Conference's reaffirmation to fight for victory, the weakness of the pro-peace faction, and the fears of Army coup, civil war, and social collapse.

Keywords:   War Cabinet, Imperial Japan, Koiso–Yonai, Germany, Gunreibu
