Default Golf Course Design and the Atom Bomb

No wonder the game is challenging.

What follows is the description of a book on Golf Course Architecture for sale on Ebay.



Synopsis
A key book for the golfer's library, exploring the intricacies of golf architecture-and how this knowledge can improve your golf game.

Behind every golf hole lies an influence on every golfer's game that few golfers ever contemplate: the course architect. Why a hole dog-legs left and not right, why bunkers end up where they are, the length of a hole, the view from the tee -- all these factors and many more are the result of choices made by the golf architect to challenge, and sometimes intimidate any golfer's game. Tom Doak, one of America's youngest and most successful golf architects, here discusses his craft and explains the strategies behind a golf architect's decision. Knowing why a course is laid out is critical to how the course should be played. Knowledgeable golfers and beginners alike will find this book fascinating reading.

On the 14th August 1945, as Emperor Hirohito recorded a message of surrender for the Japanese people, rebel troops commanded by high-ranking officers from War Minister Anami's staff burst into the Imperial palace. Their intention was to stage a coup, destroy the recording and issue forged orders for Japan to continue the war. Had they succeeded, there would have been massive kamikaze attacks on allied forces, causing carnage and possibly provoking America to drop a third atomic bomb on an already devastated Japan.
