Summary "May 1943. The Battle of Attu raged on the Aleutian island amidst Arctic cold, impenetrable fog, and rocketing winds. American and Japanese forces fought a yearlong campaign, suffering thousands of casualties. Among them was Japanese medic Paul Nobuo Tatsuguchi, a Hiroshima native who had been educated in California. He loved America, but was called to enlist in the Imperial Army of Japan. Heartsick, Tatsuguchi performed his duties and kept a diary--never knowing that finding it would lead Dick Laird, a Silver Star-decorated American soldier, to find solace for his own tortured soul"--Back cover.
