During World War II nine flyboys were captured on the island of Chichi Jimi and imprisoned. They they disappeared. The Japanese and American governments never leaked any info on the men. This book reveals for the first time, the extraordinary story of those men. The research for the book dates back to America's westward expansion and Japan's first confrontation with the west. Fascinating reading.
