God's Samurai: Lead Pilot at Pearl Harbor
Mitsuo Fuchida was the career aviator who led the attack on Pearl Harbor and participated in most of the fiercest battles of the Pacific war. A valuable record of major events, his life's story is also one of a man swept along by his times. Reared in the vanished culture of early twentieth-century Japan, war hero Fuchida returned home to become a simple farmer. After a scandalous love affair came his remarkable conversion to Christianity and years of touring the world as an evangelist. God's Samurai is a revealing, personal look at both the war and the century from the Japanese perspective.
