So many nuggets, insights and truths in the annals of time have come from the lips of eyewitnesses and participants in important historical events.
There'd be gaping holes in the chronicles of civilized man if all participants in events clammed up.....even for the most commendable of personal reasons such as shyness, self-deprecation, modesty or trying to avoid attention for oneself or family.
At the least, national-security-vetted memoirs can always be released after an honorable death.
I had no idea that Tojo attempted suicide by gunshot in his own home to avoid imminent arrest and I'm a pretty good student of history.
Thanks for posting.....and who can get that photographic clipping turned around, LOL.
