Eyes of the Emperor

By Graham Salisbury, award-winning author of Under the Blood-Red Sun

Eddie Okubo lies about his age and joins the United States Army in Honolulu in 1941. Soon after he enlists, the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor, and suddenly his fellow Americans see him as the enemy. Even the army doubts his loyalty — and the loyalty of all American soldiers of Japanese ancestry.

Then the army sends Eddy and 24 other Japanese American soldiers to a remote island on a secret mission. They are given a terrifying job and told that only they can do it. On the island, the meanings of duty, patriotism, loyalty, and courage are tested in a bizarre world. And Eddy is tried in unbelievable ways...

Soft cover. 229 pages. Printed in the USA. Approximately 5.5 inches by 8.25 inches.

Recommended for grade 8 and up.

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
