Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 22

Hello,

Thank you calling my attention to this error.

I have checked the original version of the essay and the full text should read:

"Both biographies go out of their way not to depict Ueshiba as a warmonger who happily accepted the Fifteen Years War, with all that this entailed about the Japanese empire extending to the rest of the world, and was very shocked at Japan's disastrous defeat. The issue for this column is whether either biography presents a true or even plausible picture of Morihei Ueshiba's war years."

Jun, Can you add this lacuna to the published column?
