Tokyo Rose" was the name given by GIs to the woman whose radio broadcasts for the Japanese attempted to demoralize American troops in Pacific during World War II. But, as we're told here, there was not just one "Tokyo Rose"; more than two dozen women did the broadcasting, the majority of them Japanese-Americans located, for one reason or another, in Japan. One realizes from the evidence Howe presents that the case against Iva Toguri, identified as Tokyo Rose, was contrived and that the furor over her wartime activities was a combination of journalists wanting to create news and government officials looking for revenge against the Japanese.

It is interesting to learn that there was no such person as "Tokyo Rose," that there were 27 women involved in the radio broadcasts and that the one eventually "Tokyo Rose" was the only one who had refused to renounce her American citizenship and was thus the only one who could be legally punished, a punishment that was a result of media pressure. rather than legal reality.

An excellent and very frightening read to see what a corrupt Press, Gov't and Judicial system can do to a loyal American

Six months ago I was traveling along the coast of Washington, when I woke up to the terrible TV scenes of fire and death and collapsing buildings. I wrote my first thoughts in my diary: "As events unfold, I worry of our response. Will internal security become Gestapo like? Will we isolate ourselves? What about our civil rights or the rights of dark guys with beards and robes?" To know what could happen, we only needed to look back to the internment of Japanese-Americans or the case of "Tokyo Rose" (Iva Toguri).
If you are interested in World War II history or the excesses of patriotism, this is a book you should read and keep in your library. Mr. Howe has done a through job gathering the events and as a bonus describes the world of living in an enemy's country. I also value the picture Howe paints of life as a POW in Japan. It's nice that he has humanized some of the Japanese military, even to the point of letting us see that there were good and bad on both sides. Consider, for example, the support Iva received from the fighting GI's and compare it to the pettiness of the (mostly) non-combatant government agents.
Howe's writing style could have been more readable and there were a few errors of fact. (p. 244 Doolittle's first raid was in 1942 and not two years later.) These did not detract excessively.
Our challenge today as Americans is to avoid another case of "Tokyo Rose".
  • Inabel
From the Forward by Ramsey Clark to the end of the book one can not help but be startled by the very liberal bias of the writing. It reads like a "do you still beat your wife?" question. Howe uses his literary pulpit to preach a liberal sermon. This is the fourth book he published in the first six months of 1993 -- seems like a rush to judgement. While his conclusions may be correct, his poorly concealed radical disposition destroys the credibility of his arguments. A big disappointment.
