  Godzilla and the Second World War
The monster Godzilla is the United States' atomic bomb, devastating Tokyo and reducing it to a radioactive cinder all in one night.
Godzilla, King of the Monsters was released in Japan in 1957.
While most of Godzilla's installments after the 1950s did become increasingly juvenile and silly, the first two films (in their original Japanese presentations) are serious films which explore the effects on the Japanese psyche of being the only nation to suffer from nuclear bombing.

 Books: Japanese Books: Non-Fiction: Godzilla Encyclopedia 1954 - 1999
For an interval we get a look at Godzilla 1998 and the animated series that followed it, the book features some excellent pictures of the beasts from the cartoon but the lack of full kaiju statistics is a small let down, not that many more follow it.
We then resume with the Showa series from Godzilla 1954 to the Terror of MechaGodzilla 1975 again set in the same format as before and again with a ton of pictures and information.
Following that is a brief look at some other small time Godzilla television shows aired in Japan such as Godzilla Adventure Land between 1992 and 1993 and Godzilla Kingdom from 1996 to 1997 before focusing more on the Godzilla Island series and introducing some of the new kaiju that made their debut within.
