Review: Published in 1951, this is a simple book, with simple prose. Translated from the Japanese, this is told by Fuchida, from his days as a pilot for the Japanese Airforce leading the attack on Pearl Harbor to his days as a missionary and evangelist for Christ.
Fuchida explains in simple prose how strongly he believed in the Manual of War, the book of Japanese Military Protocol and Philosophy. He believed in superiority of the Japanese people and he believed in the cause of his nation. But after, with the devastating defeat, he was lost. A chance encounter with a street evangelist changed his life. He found a peace and a purpose to his life, unlike any he’d know.
The remainder of the book speaks about his life as an evangelist, working with the young men of Japan. Compelling and encourage, this is an excellent read for anyone interested in foreign missions and the mission work in Japan.
