Hirohito: Emperor of Japan by Leonard Mosley
"Yomo no umi Mina harakara to Omou yo ni Nado namikaze no Tachisawagaruramu."
The seas surround all quarters of the globe And my heart cries out to the nations of the world. Why then do the winds and waves of strife Disrupt the peace between us?
- a poem written by Emperor Meiji, grandfather of Hirohito
