Shobun, A Forgotten War Crime in the Pacific

By Goodwin, Michael J.; Graydon, Don

McLean, Virginia: Stackpole Books, 1995. First Edition. Hardcover. Good/Good. Type: Ex-Library First Edition Ex-Library Hardcover Book and Dust Jacket in Good Condition.

Tight and solid. b/w photogrtaphs. Pages clean, no underlining or highlighting of text, no creases. Michael Goodwin has pieced together the harrowing tale of one patrol plane's crew after the crash landing of their PBY Acatlina and their subsequest capture. It is a story of the clash of cultures, of bureaucratic neglect and inefficiency, of the code of bushido, of willful flouting of the rules of war, of brutality, and of tragedy--all wrapped up in the shifting definition of the Japanese word 'shogun'. And it is the story of a son's search for a father he never met, of his attempt to recover from the bland official documents about his father's death in the Southwest Pacific, and a search for truth and justice for those unfortunate airmen. 147 pages, indexed. 6 x 8.5 inches. 1995, Stackpole Books, Mechanicsburg, PA, USA
