Forgiveness and Redemption after the Atrocities of War
I read a lot of books about World War II, but rarely from a Japanese point of view. This booklet, written in 1951, tells the story of Mitsuo Fuchida, the man who led the first wave of attacks on Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941. It is a powerful testimony of how God turns enemies into brothers.

From Pearl Harbor To Calvary relates not only Fuchida’s story, but also the stories of others who should have been embittered by the war: Peggy Covell, a young woman whose missionary parents were killed by the Japanese and Jacob DeShazer who had been a POW in a Japanese prison camp.

A quick and inspiring audiobook.

Something New
I'd never heard of this story before, what a great story. Something good that came out of the horrible 2nd world war.

Subtle and dignified performance
'Choi gives a subtle and dignified performance that is appropriately self-disciplined and ably displays Fuchida's sincerity.'
