Reporter Goro Arai covers the war for a Japanese newspaper. He follows the activities of Japan's top military leader, Hideki Tojo, and comes to view Tojo as a dangerous military tyrant. But anyone standing in Tojo's way is in danger, and so it proves for Arai.

This tremendous blockbuster hit from 1970, showing the rise to power of Tojo Hideki, is perhaps the most important film to come out of Japan since the 7 Samurai! 

Interspersed with actual footage dating back to the 1930’s and throughout the Great Pacific War it shows in exciting detail the early successes and ultimate failure of the Japanese war machine. Never before has there been a chronicle of this magnitude about the war in the Pacific Theatre of Operations, rivalling Saving Private Ryan with its intense battle scenes. With a brilliant cast featuring Keiju Kobayashi as Tojo, So Yamamura as former Prime Minister Yonai, Toshiro Mifune as Admiral Yamamoto, and Yuzo Kayama as an intrepid newspaper reporter whose articles detailing Japanese losing battles infuriates Tojo to the point of putting his life in danger! The final hour of this film features some of the most disturbing aspects of how the Japanese fought to save their nation and their honour!
