In this 2009 speech given by a central figure in the decades-long citizen's movement to remember and memorialize the Tokyo air raids, Saotome Katsumoto details his own experience of the March 10, 1945 firebombing of Japan's capital. He then situates the air raids on Tokyo within the context of twentieth century terror bombing campaigns and Japan's "Fifteen Year War" in Asia.
