Plot Summary: Onward Towards Our Noble Deaths is a semi-autobiographical account of the desperate final weeks of a Japanese infantry unit at the end of World War II. The soldiers were told that they must go into battle and die for the honor of their country, with certain execution facing them if they returned alive. Mizuki was a soldier himself, and he uses his experiences to convey the devastating consequences and moral depravity of the war.
