The True Story of Mitsuo Fuchida, the Pilot Who Led the Attack on Pearl Harbor, Whose Life Was Transformed by An American Prisoner and by A Girl He Never MetBook - 2016
"Wounded Tiger is the compelling true story of Mitsuo Fuchida, the Japanese pilot who led the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in World War II. Fuming with a hatred for Americans and a strong sense of national and racial pride, Fuchida allows an intense passion and determination to lead him through the ranks of the Japanese Navy and reaches a position he always knew he would achieve. Jake DeShazer joins the U.S. Army as a bombardier, burning with vengeance after the attack on Pearl Harbor. He becomes a POW for years, battling insanity in solitary confinement, until he discovers the secret for change. The Covells, an American family of missionaries in Japan, flees the country to the Philippines. When they do, the oldest daughter, Peggy, becomes intertwined with someone unexpected, and unknowingly impacts the course of his life forever. Three seemingly unrelated wartime narratives come together in this well-researched, incredibly thorough fictional historical account of the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Witness the story unfold before, during, and after the attack, and see the true impact of this infamous event in world history. This expanded second edition includes over 250 rare historical photographs, maps and images." -- Amazon.com.
