This is actually quite good but I can't help the feeling of the overwhelming smell of a whitewash. Obviously this is not factual but the drama glosses over some important points to make our hero look good: 1. The spy allegation. 2. Sawajima is made to look like a 2 dimensional pantomime villain but in spite of this Endou Kenichi does well to portray his character.3. It doesn't show his wife's side of the story. 4.The wartime military elites seem to continue to hold important posts after the war. 5.Much of the contract work seems to be tied up with military contracts like the trucks for the Indonesian army and the procurement of F-14 jet fighters for Iran. And yet this is ushered into the background. 5. The treatment of Koide by the company.6. Just what role and responsibilty did Iki Tadashi have during the war.So for me the drama losses marks because of this.Other than that the cast was excellent and the actors apart from Koyuki and Amami Yuki, were aged well by the make up crew, those 2 didn't look any different as the years passed.

wow, Iki Tadashi was really a great man. My eyes filled with tears at the end of epi 19, when he said "i never done anything to this country" although he already did some great thing for Japan and sacrifice some of his life for it

Well scripted, with a perfect cast and high production values. This showpiece was riveting start to finish.
