Korechika Anami
Birth: Feb. 21, 1887
Oita, Japan
Death: Aug. 15, 1945
Tokyo Metropolis, Japan

Statesman and Army General. He was named Minister of War in April 1945 in Kantaro Suzuki's cabinet. He supported continued all-out war against the United States in a cabinet meeting held August 14, 1945, held to discuss the terms of the Potsdam Treaty declaration. After Emperor Hirohito decided to surrender, Anami committed suicide the following night, thereby thwarting an attempted coup d'etat fomented by a cadre of young officers counting on his support. (bio by: Warrick L.
