Remembering the war in the Pacific

CSPAN (streaming video) has a lecture by Richard B Frank on the Pacific war...

and notes that American students are clueless to the huge number of Chinese and other civilians killed in that war.

a lecture on the Chinese part of the war 

and an extract of his book at the NYTimes, discussing the firebombing of Tokyo.

and no, I haven't listened to the whole thing, since the internet is going on and off and I can't download it.
