Harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii
Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, 120,000 people of Japanese descent were forcibly removed from their homes, uprooted from the lives they built and stripped of their civil rights. The aftermath of Japanese American incarceration led to a national movement for reparations. Reset learns about a new multimedia experience about the Japanese American redress movement in Chicago and the lessons their story holds for communities seeking justice and healing today.
Part two-Led by Claire Chennault, the Flying Tigers were a group of American pilots who originally signed as mercenaries for China in 1941 to fight Japanese aggression in China and Burma. Chennault had worked to build China's air force since 1937 when the Japanese invaded China and seized Shanghai and Nanking, but finally received help from FDR in 1941 in the form of planes and pilots. Chennault had the answer for the fast Japanese Zero plane- but it would take training and discipline to make sure his men learned it. When they did, it provided the first good news since the invasion of Pearl Harbor and listed American and Chinese morale. Voices AVG Cols Tex Hikk, Ed Rector, Dick Rossi. East Asia Media.

This episode is about submariner and World War II war hero, Robert Hunt, otherwise known as "Bob" Hunt by those of us who grew up in Decorah, Iowa. Bob served as a torpedoman in on the USS Tambor, one of the leading attack submarines of the Pacific War. Bob served as a torpedoman on a nearly unheard of 12 submarine missions during the Pacific War. My guest is Dr. Robert Schultz, PhD, former English professor at Luther College and co-author of Bob's biography, "We Were Pirates", about Bob's experiences as a submariner in the Pacific War. He currently serves as professor emeritus of English at Roanoke College in Virginia. We'll take you on Bob's incredible odyssey from Decorah, Iowa to the attack on Pearl Harbor, to Battle of Midway to the farthest reaches of the Pacific. I only knew Bob as the guy that I played tennis with in my teens. I had no idea he lived through one the most dangerous aspects of naval service, a submariner on an attack sub during the Pacific. Bob faced incredible danger, and survived to tell his story. Bob is a real American hero. Very grateful to have known him and that Dr. Schultz took the time to write this incredible biography of Bob Hunt.

Dr. Joseph Clements, a former USM professor, was drafted into the U.S. Army in the Fall of 1941. In this episode, he shares his memories of the war. Clements remembers hearing about the attack on Pearl Harbor while training in Texas and his first assignment in Alaska, where he encountered the “midnight sun.” During WWII, thousands of allied troops gathered in England in preparation for the invasion of France. Clements recalls fondly the diversity of the people he met while waiting for D-Day. As allied forces battled their way across the French countryside, livestock was slaughtered indiscriminately. Clements describes the devastation and a grateful French woman who offered them a homecooked meal. Before America entered WWII, Joseph Clements watched newsreel footage of the fall of France. He recounts visiting the spot where Hitler danced after forcing the French to surrender. This episode of Mississippi Moments was written by Sean O'Farrell and produced by Ross Walton, with narration by Bill Ellison.

The U.S. entered the Second World War in December 1941 when the Japanese attacked the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. In January 1942, the United States established the 8th Bomber Group. By February 1942, the 8th Bomber Group had a detachment in England, its first combat units arrived in June, and it launched its first raid on July 4th, 1942 as the 8th Air Force. The 8th Air Force was the centerpiece to the U.S.' precision daylight bombing campaign against Germany. By the middle of 1944 it had over 200,000 people. During World War Two the 8th Air Force conducted over 440,000 bomber sorties over Europe and dropped 697,000 tons of bombs. All this came with a price. 47,483 members of the 8th Air Force were killed. A very small cog in this big machine was B-17 co-pilot Bert Stiles. He arrived in England in March 1944 and flew with the 91st Bomb Group. He wrote “Serenade to the Big Bird” while doing it.
“I don't change my style for anybody. Pussies do that.” - Michael Bay This week on the show, we close out our four week retrospective on post-9/11 cinema with what might be the most American film ever made: Michael Bay's "Bad Boys 2." A movie that not only reinvigorated director Michael Bay after his failed attempt to make a more classical wartime romance with “Pearl Harbor,” but also inadvertently reprogrammed audience's expectations for action movies in the decades to come. A portal into the mind of Bay and the average American, "Bad Boys 2" might be the definitive post-9/11 work. A two and a half hour love letter to American excess that begins with two Black detectives infiltrating a KKK meeting and climaxes with the Miami P.D. invading Cuba, "Bad Boys 2" is now considered the most irresponsible, downright evil movie a major studio produced in the 21st century. It's also a relentless and often mesmerizing piece of action filmmaking that could have only been made by Michael Bay. Film critic Logan Kenny joins us to discuss the paradox of being a Bay fan and the enduring legacy of the film nearly 20 years later. Is Mike Lowery the most evil "hero" cinema has ever given us? Does Will Smith ever have chemistry with his female co-stars? Is the blatant homophobia on display in the film more dangerous than the "subtle" microaggressions found in more liberal 2000s entertainment like "Friends"? Is crunk actually making a comeback? Does Henry Rollins eat pussy? And will there ever be another studio movie as hateful as this? Find out now.

Saké Barrel Divers The mariner brings a spirit of work and focus to any job. A fisherman brings faith. Together, these traits form a citizen of the oceans. In the middle chapters of world nautical history, specific characteristics from the tenacity of the Japanese fisherman/sailor have profoundly shaped the American mariner. Sailor's knowledge is transformative. Knowledge of techniques, sources of best practices, the intuition and faith, are guidelines to living on the ocean. Like flotsam and jetsam, what doesn't work on this tide might be the solution on the next. The American mariner at the turn of the century could be characterized as being in a period of transition. The Japanese fisherman had a thousand years of uninterrupted practice at fishing and sailing. Their fortitude and skill became the envy of the white population in Southern California during a time of Jim Crow. Anger and racism persist today among a few, but it is clear the heritage of the Japanese fisherman and sailor added a beneficial facet to the American marine character.Japanese fisherman sailed down the west coast of American past Point Conception and found the Channel Islands. The Japanese showed great courage and determination to build a new life based on ancient skills. Japanese on the Channel Islands began harvesting abalone at the turn of the century. The Channel Islands lay a few miles off Santa Barbara. Both Japanese and Chinese abalone competed fiercely for the abalone, a delicacy much loved in Los Angeles's Little Tokyo and China town. The railroad brought many Chinese and Japanese laborers to Southern California. However, the Japanese that made the mark were the sailors and fishermen. Japanese fishermen began diving for abalones, first as free divers from surface floats and later, more successfully, as hard-hat divers. They used old rice wine casks as floats to rest on after each dive. Taking a few deep breaths, they would dive to the bottom and return to the surface with their catch. They quickly earned the nickname of saké barrel divers because of their unusual technique. Abalone are snails with a large foot used for grasping a rock. They feed off the kelp and the organisms that live in and around the kelp. Often an urchin will attach itself to the heavy shell and offer camouflage. Once a diver spots an abalone, he swoops in and tries to lift it off the rock as quickly as possible. This can be done with some success. If the Abalone locks, it's meaty foot to the rock, a bar will be needed to pry the foot off the rock. It is not a simple task, especially free diving. In 1900, county ordinances were passed that made it illegal to gather abalones from less than twenty feet of water. These regulations were racially motivated. The regulations completely halted Chinese commercial abalone operations. Undaunted by the new regulations, the Japanese dominated the collecting of the abalone in a short time. “Avalon. Catalina is up in arms. She has been invaded by Japan. A lot of little brown men, with a small sloop, appeared at Empire a few days since, and are preceding to skin the rocks of the abalones. These Japs are divers. They wear goggles with which they locate the abalone as they swim along the surface, and making a spring, they emulate the ‘hell diver' and disappear to wrench the inoffensive shellfish from its hold on the rock by a quick thrust of an iron bar. Practice has made these men able to remain underwater an inconceivable length of time, and they seem to be as much at home in and under the water as the shag...” LA Times. April 21, 1903. Soon the albacore was over fished. One of the last remaining drying camps was White Point. The Japanese were routed by police and forced to leave. Unable to dive for albacore, the fisherman took up residence on Terminal Island in Los Angeles harbor. Shifting gears, the Japanese fisherman took to purse seine fishing for tuna. Japanese fishermen built small rowboats to explore the San Pedro Bay for tuna and used 6-foot poles for their catch. By 1907, the Japanese fishing village of Fish Harbor was established with its first houses built on pilings along the shore of the main channel. Within a few years, the Japanese population on Terminal Island had increased to 600. The tight-knit community, living in isolation, developed their own blend of Japanese and English, referred to as “kii-shu ben”, a dialect from the Kii district in Wakayama, the township where many had immigrated. While small motorboats increased the distance traveled for their catch, Japanese immigrants devised an unprecedented fishing technique. They would send an advance boat to scout for schools of albacore tuna and catch the anchovies and sardines the tuna followed for live bait. Then, a fishing vessel with a team of fishermen would release the bait and spear the tuna using short bamboo poles with hooks while standing on the steel walkways near the hulls and toss them on to the deck of the boat. Because of local fishermen's high yield of tuna, several fish canneries opened on Terminal Island. Their success was met with anger and violence. The Los Angeles Herald reported August 4, 1920: “Fishermen battle. Vessel blown up. San Diego, August 4. — The police today expressed the belief that ill feeling among the Japanese an Italian and Austrian fishermen operating off the Southern California coast, has led to a sea battle in which the Japanese fishingschooner Yomato was blown up or sunk and her entire crew slain. Bits of wreckage fromthe Yomato were found today. Recently, four bodies were washed ashore. How many lives were lost is unknown?” August 7, 1920 [LAH]: “Hunt Austrians as Jap boat wrecks. Nets on Japanese fishing craft were tucked in lockers today and the smacks themselves idled back and forth in zig-zag courses over the fishing lanes while the expressionless faces of their owners searched the sea for a sight of certain Austrian boats, wanted in connection with the sinking of the Jap boat Itzumato. Government patrol boats are plying overfishing banks in Southern California waters on the same mission, trying to find the craft and its crew believed to be responsible for the ramming of the Itzumato and the probable murder of its crew. Working to end the feud prevailing for weeks between Japanese and Austrian fishermen, Fish and Game Warden Paul Anderson, on board the patrol boat Albacore, came on the wrecked Itzumato off Catalina Island last night. Coincident with the report of the finding of the Itzumato, it was reported in San Diego by American fishermen that the crew of a wrecked Japanese boat had been picked up by an Italian fishing craft. Word of the Phrone Rose, an Austrian boat, has not been received for the past 10 days and authorities are now confident that this boat has met the same fate as the other, being sunk with her crew on board. The fishing boat Wanderer of San Pedro, abandoned by her crew because of a broken propeller shaft, is now believed to be a derelict at sea, according to the latest reports. With the finding of the wrecked Itzumato, four boats are now missing in Southern California waters, only one of which has been fully accounted for. Besides the Wanderer and Phrone Rose, a Japanese boat named Yamato disappeared last month and is believed to have been swallowed up by the sea and hew crew murdered in the Jap-Austrian warfare.” The Japanese were in the right in these conflicts. The Austrians and Italians were poaching the fishing grounds. No matter the right, being white won the day. No one was ever prosecuted for the murders. The warfare eventually dissipated with the loss of fishing stocks. The incidents were closely watched by the local fisherman. For Los Angeles locals, these reports were sensational news. Testimonies of the times:“My father's name is Tomekichi Takeuchi. The Japanese came from Shima-gun, Mieken, Japan. He landed in San Francisco in 1902, at twenty-two years old. He worked as a cook in a restaurant for a couple of years. Heard him mention how he threw a pie at a customer and got fired. He moved to Los Angeles, Little Tokyo, and got a job as a private chauffeur driver, off and on. Meantime, he moved to Terminal Island, called his wife from Japan. He and his friend, Mr. Heizaburo Hamaguchi, leased a fishing boat called Amazon from French Cannery. They carried, including them, thirteen crew members. They fished from near the lighthouse, to the north and much later toward Mexico.” Kimiye Okuno Takeuchi Ariga. “Fish Harbor on Terminal Island was on the southwestern part of the island and comprised a fishing fleet, canneries, and 5,000 Japanese men, women, and children. The adults were the first generation Issei from Japan, and their children who were born in America are the Nisei like me. The fishermen working out of Fish Harbor visited the local waters of Catalina, Santa Barbara, and San Diego to catch sardines, mackerel, skipjack, and tuna throughout the year. My father was captain of a small fishing boat and had several men working for him. My mother worked in the fish cannery, of which they were part owners. Each cannery had a very loud whistle, which was sounded when a ship came into the harbor with a catch, signaling that it was time to go to work. Most of the ladies knew what cannery was calling for work by its distinctive whistle. I recall hearing the loud whistles from the various canneries being blown one after another. This meant that many ships had come back full of fish. My mother, like all the ladies, always had her work clothes ready, because there was no definite schedule when the ships would come in. Most of the ships did not have a radio or other communications equipment. Upon hearing the whistle, my mother would drop whatever she was doing, change clothes and run to work, along with many others in the neighborhood. Four of the largest canneries were French Sardine, Van Camp, Franco-Italian and Southern California.” Frank Koo Endo. By the 1930s, the Japanese community had increased to 2,000, with most of the men employed as fishermen and the women working in the canneries.In 1935, following the depression, 6,000 people were directly employed in the fishing industry. Its payroll was the largest in San Pedro, approximately three-quarters of a million dollars per month. The industry was at its peak during World War II. During the fifties, sardines, and mackerel gradually diminished, causing the decline of the industry in San Pedro.There is no better example of the determination, work ethic and skill of the Japanese fisherman. They were directly responsible for creating the fishing industry that employed 6,000 American workers despite the sickness that was Jim Crow. At its height in 1942, the Nikkei population had grown to 3,000, just prior to its abrupt demise following the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Internment “On December 7, 1942, I was in the twelfth grade. My father was still working the rice business in Japan, and soon I was going to graduate with the class of summer 1942. I heard on the radio that morning that Pearl Harbor had been attacked by the Japanese. I really didn't know where Pearl Harbor was but was shocked by the news. I wondered if this would have any effect on me. Early that afternoon, I went to see a movie in San Pedro. I boarded the ferryboat that I took daily to school. Upon docking in San Pedro, I was taken into custody, along with other Japanese Americans, by armed soldiers. We were put into a temporary barbed wire enclosure. I told them I was an American citizen, but they stated they had orders to stop all Japanese. After being detained a couple of hours, we were told to return to the island.” Frank Koo Endo. On February 19, 1942, Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, ultimately sending 120,000 Japanese Americans to internment camps. Within two days, Terminal Island residents were told they had 48 hours to prepare for relocation. Former Terminal Islanders recall with great sadness giving up almost everything they owned, including business their families had built up for generations. Interning Japanese Americans was done out of fear and ignorance. It was illegal. The Japanese sailors had made their mark on the American mariner. offshoreexplorer.org

After tragic moments in American history… we've always been asked to remember what happened. In the 1800's the battle cry was Remember the Alamo! In the 1900's… Remember Pearl Harbor. But we don't say Remember 9/11. We say Never Forget. And there's a difference. Remember the Alamo… almost sounds like a request. Through the lens of time we hear “Remember Pearl Harbor” and as the greatest generation fades away it seems less like a battle cry, and more like a plea that a dark moment and souls lost hold their page in the history books and they have as they should. But the vast majority of Americans only remember Pearl Harbor — not as a visceral shock to the system … but as a story told by grandparents who struggle to share the raw emotion, and the fear, and the anger that spurred the country to great things. The story can be retold but the raw emotions can't be shared. We remember Pearl Harbor. But 9-11… we say… we demand Never Forget. In New York the charity is the Never Forget Fund. Even Clydsdale Commercials over the weekend said Never Forget. A statement of defiance about a brief moment of desperation and pain. And we won't forget. But our grandchildren will never remember. They can't feel what we felt but I did find hope this weekend from - of all people - a teenage Canadian girl… who just came from nowhere and played in the finals of the US Open Tennis Championship and after the biggest moment in her young life… at Center Stage in New York City … Leyland Fernandez had the presence of mind to literally grab the mic and say this… She is only 19. There is some hope. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Well…Melissa couldn't help but throw a curveball our way. We were supposed to discuss another Michael Bay classic with “Pearl Harbor”, but instead we chose to end Season 2 on a high note…on the beach with some hot bods.

"Opisujem to ako nukleárnu zimu. Keď som tam prvýkrát prišiel, po tom, čo sa zrútili obe budovy, keď ste boli na západnej strane Manhattanu, tam stále svietilo slnko. Pozrel som sa smerom k New Jersey a slnko stále svietilo. Ak ste však boli na východnej strane, odkiaľ vial vietor, to bola nukleárna zima. Veľmi jasne si pamätám, že tam neboli žiadne farby, všetko bolo sivé. Ďalšia vec, ktorú si pamätám, je, že nikto neplakal, nikto nekričal. Nebol tam žiaden kancelársky nábytok. Bol tam iba prach, betón a oceľ," popisuje deň, kedy padli v New Yorku dvojičky hasič James Manahan. "Konšpiračné teórie ma nesmierne hnevajú. Viem, že ľudia budú veriť tomu, čomu chcú, internet tomu určite nepomáha.Hnevá ma to, pretože zomrelo toľko ľudí - záchranárov a civilistov. Ľudia ochoreli," reaguje Manahan na reči, že dvojičky nespadli pre teroristické útoky. "Bol to Pearl Harbor našej generácie. Krajinu to spojilo." Ako vyzerali prvé hodiny adni po páde mrakodrapov WTC v New Yorku 11. septembra 2001? Koľko ďalších obetí si vyžiadali dlhodobé následky z požiarov? A ako jeden z najväčších teroristických útokov zmenil svet?

Twenty years ago today, Islamist terrorists struck America. Across the country and around the world, Americans were left battered and broken in the aftermath of the first significant attack on U.S. soil since Pearl Harbor. Life could never be the same after Sept. 11, 2001.But life didn't stop after that terrible day. Survivors had to go on, amid immense pain and suffering inflicted by those who would destroy our way of life. The question is how?Tim Brown is a retired New York firefighter who survived 9/11. He's also a motivational speaker who uses his grief and trauma from that day as a tool to help others work through their own issues.“For every person who was obese, pregnant, injured, disabled, there were four or five office workers, not cops or firemen, helping that person," Brown says of what he witnessed that day. "And it made me proud of humanity, because we help each other. That's what we do.”Brown, 59, joins this bonus episode of "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss what he experienced on 9/11 and share how others can push past their own awful circumstances.

September 11, 2001 - A day that truly will live in infamy. Many Americans are forgetting the crucial lessons of that terrible day. They don't realize the shock that is awaiting us here in America. Another terrorist attack, as sure as we're sitting here. What form it will take is anyone's guess. But if it happens Biden administration will blame white supremacy at first, and then they will try to seize our guns. Trump destroyed ISIS but the Taliban has flourished and now Biden is bringing in unvetted “refugees” from Afghanistan. Barry Goldwater said: “Extremism in the defense of Liberty is no vice.” Be an extremist. Do not shrink from the fight against socialism and the corrupt Biden administration. But remember you can be an extremist without being violent. Discusses unresolved incidents since 9/11: the Navy Seals killed in a helicopter crash in 2011, why no formal investigation? And the radical Islamist Ft. Hood shooter who shouted “Allah!” but deemed “workplace violence”) Jack Hatfield series was about radical Islam and Chinese terrorists (as relevant today as when first written).

National Post The greatest significance of the dramatic and evil assault on New York's World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Washington 20 years ago was that it initiated a new form of quasi-military violence against the Western democratic powers that had emerged at the end of the Cold War as overwhelmingly the most influential political, economic and cultural force in the world. The national security policy of the leader of the Western alliance, the United States, was enunciated in two speeches to the United States Congress by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941. In his State of the Union address in January of that year he said that America “must always be wary of those who with ‘sounding brass and tinkling cymbal' would preach the ‘ism of appeasement'.” In his war message of December 8, 1941, following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and many other sites in the Pacific, Roosevelt said, “we will make very certain that this form of treachery never again endangers us.” The burden of these assertions was that the United States would not be an appeasement power and that it would thereafter retain sufficient deterrent strength that no country would attack it again as Japan had. Between Roosevelt and George W. Bush, 10 presidents, five of each party, had essentially upheld that double formula successfully. The United States did not appease competing or adversarial states, although it attempted to compromise with them; and no other country has dared to risk the retaliatory response of American military might. The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, were the fruit of the imagination of the most militant enemies of America and the West: an attack by people who deliberately committed suicide in conducting the attack—not only were unafraid of dying but were eager to die—by forces that could not be directly linked in any command structure to any sovereign state. It was, after 50 years, the double evasion of the Roosevelt formula: forces so shadowy it was not clear how they could be appeased if anyone wished to do so, and so fanatical that they could not be deterred from even the most heinous acts because of their ardent desire to die for their cause. Clearly, and in the most dramatic possible way, a new threat had emerged. The spectacle on television of the attacks on the World Trade Center towers is rivaled only by the film of the assassination of Pres. Kennedy as the most vividly and widely remembered incident in the lifetime of anyone now living. It must be said that the American and allied response was impressive. For the first time, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) invoked the war clause and the North Atlantic Council, NATO's governing authority, unanimously stated that an Alliance member had been attacked in an act of war and every country in the alliance responded as if it were an act of war against themselves: “An attack upon one is an attack upon all.” Forces from a large number of NATO countries were dispatched to Afghanistan, [which w]as the training and staging area for the 9/11 outrages. They quickly overthrew the Afghan government, destroyed the training facilities of the terrorist groups and drove them out of Afghanistan; and virtually every country in the world other than a few militantly Islamist or very primitive states united in a vast system of information exchange and paramilitary cooperation. Those who remember 9/11 well will remember the widespread speculation and the noisy threats of terrorist spokespeople to the effect that this was merely the introduction of an endless series of massive terrorist assaults upon the West. Of course, there have been some such assaults, although very few recently and some of them were very deadly—though none as horrible or spectacular as the 9/11 attacks 20 years ago. We must not be so depressed and scandalized by the shameful end of the NATO presence in Afghanistan, at the instigation of the current U.S. president, that we fail to recognize the very thorough and almost leak-proof protection that the antiterrorist forces of the Western Alliance and its affiliates, such as Israel and Japan, have given the civil population of the West and its allies these 20 years. The disorderly withdrawal from Afghanistan has been an appalling fiasco but the West was certainly not militarily defeated. The American government decided, as the Soviet Union decided in the 1980's and the British Empire decided in the middle of the 19th century, that Afghanistan had few resources, was primitive, landlocked, and terribly inhospitable, had practically no strategic value and was accordingly not worth the military effort to maintain control of the urban areas as NATO was doing with only about 10,000 members of its Armed Forces until a month ago. There is room to dispute this judgment, and I don't agree with it myself, but it was a public relations and not a military defeat. The effect of this withdrawal will be to test whether the Islamist terrorist forces wish to use Afghanistan again as the launching place for their criminal violence or not. If they do, obviously, Afghanistan will be attacked again and probably with much greater violence than it was 20 years ago. Afghanistan has been regarded as rich only in heroin, but the theory has recently arisen that it is rich in rare earths as well. It sounds like Marxist Herbert Marcuse's theory that the U.S. was in Vietnam because of the oil (which still has not been discovered). In any case, if China wants to plunge into mineral exploration in Afghanistan and add it to its famous Belt and Road, it is welcome to it. Terrorism isn't really war: it isn't an effort of one sovereign authority to try to overcome and defeat another. It is an attempt by people who possess no sovereign authority, no legitimacy whatever, to strike at innocent people with such violence that it produces sketchily outlined concessions from legitimate sovereign countries. It has been successful only when it has been the advance activity of ultimately successful revolutionary movements within certain countries. It is conceivable that it could undermine and heavily influence, as it has in the last 20 years, some countries highly susceptible to militant Islam. But even those countries will not explicitly adopt terrorist techniques because the retaliation from the states they attacked would be so overwhelming, it would completely over-power the small number of fanatics and programmed idiots who want to die for their cause. The terrible events of 20 years ago and their sequels have not threatened our civilization as Nazism and Soviet communism did: Great Powers armed to the teeth and led by satanic dictators. Terrorism horrifies all decent people and kills a comparatively small number, but as an instrument of advancement of the cause in which it is inflicted, terrorism is a failure. The West's error, and it was the mistake of George W. Bush, was to try to eradicate terrorism and war by promoting democracy. This required nation-building so profound that there were not the time or the resources to complete it effectively in the barren soil of primitive and undemocratic societies. And it failed to provide for the democratic selection of anti-democratic political movements: Hamas in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and the Iraqi electorate may prefer dictatorship to democracy. Humiliating debacle though it was, the departure from Afghanistan does represent a withdrawal by the West from an overextended position, and an opportunity for the principal Muslim terrorist organizations to try more conventional and less sociopathic methods of advancing their cause. It is obvious that there will be no toleration, anywhere in the West, or by China and Russia (pending Russia taking its rightful place as a western country) for terrorism or any of its espoused objectives. The terrorist attacks in New York and Washington 20 years ago were permanently shocking, but as the dramatic beginning of a campaign to shatter Western civilization, they and their sequels have been almost as conspicuous a failure as were Nazi Germany's recourse to aggressive war in 1939 and Imperialist Japan's assault on Pearl Harbor and across the Pacific in 1941. ..
Naomi Hirahara, the Edgar Award-winning author of the Mas Arai series, talks to Carol Fitzgerald about her latest historical mystery novel, Clark and Division, which is a Bookreporter Bets On selection. Clark and Division tells the story of the Ito family who was detained first at Manzanar in California and then to Chicago in 1944 as Japanese Americans were moved by the government after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The oldest daughter, Rose, had gone on ahead of the family to Chicago, and they were eager to reconnect with her. But the day before the family arrives, Rose is killed in a subway accident, which is ruled a suicide. Aki doesn't believe that about her older sister Rose, and she embarks on a quest to unravel the truth about her death. Naomi talks to Carol about the research she did to tell this story, and how her nonfiction research on Japanese Americans inspires her fiction. She talks about her trip to Chicago, where she walked the streets of Clark and Division to absorb details shared in her writing. Clark and Division is so much different than most World War II historical novels, and they discuss how it would be perfect for book club discussions.

Sermon TranscriptI want to show you a famous picture that you have likely seen before. It was taken November 28, 1943, in Tehran. This was a famous meeting that took place between quite unlikely allies. Tehran Conference November 1943 Seated on the left is Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin. In the Center is President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. And on the Right is British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Now, most of us were raised learning something about the relationship between Roosevelt and Churchill. The United States and our British allies have had a strong relationship for quite some time, and so there may be an assumption that these two men saw eye-to-eye on everything. And they certainly did spend a considerable amount of time together -- starting in December of 1941. Immediately following the attack on Pearl Harbor, Churchill and some advisors traveled to Washington DC and spent Christmas with the Roosevelt family at the White House.Churchill gave his famous speech to a Joint Session of Congress on the day after Christmas, in which he ended the speech by giving his famous V for victory gesture which drove congress to erupt in cheers and applause. What wouldn't be revealed until after his death is that the Prime Minister suffered a heart attack that evening -- but he maintained his work and meeting schedule while in DC, saying that now is not the time for weakness. But, Churchill and Roosevelt had their share of battles -- perhaps the largest being over British colonialism. President Roosevelt was pushing Churchill hard for the independence of places like India. Roosevelt's son Elliot commented that his father would often laugh in private about the grimace that would come on Churchill's face every time the president mentioned India. But the truly unlikely alliance in the picture is the presence of Joseph Stalin. Estimates are all over the place, but historians are in almost unanimous agreement that Stalin was responsible for deliberately ordering the deaths of at least a million people that he perceived as political threats. Several studies recently by respected historians are indicating that the number was likely much higher than that, but that much work was done to cover up the atrocities. The presence of a brutal dictator unified in effort with Roosevelt and Churchill, two great voices for freedom and peace --- is an unlikely alliance. But, they had a common enemy. A common threat to their well-being. Aristotle, who was born around 4 centuries before Christ, famously said, “A common danger unites even the bitterest enemies.”From that meeting in Tehran came a unified commitment to attack German control from the West, in addition to the ongoing battle on the Eastern Front. And rising out of their discussions came the framework for what we know today as Operation Overlord -- or the Battle of Normandy. An unlikely alliance. Unified because of a common enemy.That's exactly what we see in our sermon text for today in the Gospel According to Mark. Would you stand if you are able for the reading of our scripture text:Mark 12:13-17:Later they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Jesus to catch him in his words. 14 They came to him and said, “Teacher, we know that you are a man of integrity. You aren't swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who they are; but you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Is it right to pay the imperial tax to Caesar or not? 15 Should we pay or shouldn't we?”But Jesus knew their hypocrisy. “Why are you trying to trap me?” he asked. “Bring me a denarius and let me look at it.” 16 They brought the coin, and he asked them, “Whose image is this? And whose inscription?”“Caesar's,” they replied.17 Then Jesus said to them, “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's.”And they were amazed at him.God, we believe that your word is true, that it is living, and that it will stand forever. We submit ourselves to your word, and ask you to show us our sin and then lead us to the cross where we find mercy and grace. We pray in Jesus' name. Amen. Well in this passage we find a curious alliance between two opposing groups of people: The Pharisees and Herodians. We have heard much about the Pharisees throughout our time in this Gospel, but we last encountered the Herodians in Mark chapter 3. You may remember the story of Jesus healing the man with a withered hand. The Pharisees were all worked up because Jesus had the audacity to heal this man on the sabbath -- when “work” was prohibited. And Mark tells us that they leave that encounter with Jesus, and call a meeting with the Herodians -- and the purpose of their meeting was to decide how to destroy Jesus. Fast forward to today's text in Chapter 12 and these unlikely allies are at it again. But, it might be helpful to recognize why they are such unlikely allies. The Pharisees were a powerful party within Judaism during the period of time surrounding Jesus' life and ministry. While they were more reserved and peaceable than some zealots of their day, they were adamantly opposed to Roman rule. Within their culture, they were more than just a religious group. They had political and cultural power and were certainly advocating for a restoration of Israel's independence and autonomy. In fact, they viewed both Herod and Caesar as illegitimate rulers. Israeli nationalism was strong during these years. And then there's the Herodians. Admittedly, we don't know a lot about the Herodians, but there's widespread agreement that these were followers of Judaism who were comfortable with and advocated for Roman rule. Some would have done so because of economic gain, like Matthew the Tax Collector, while others may have simply found that alignment with Herod's family and rule gave them safety and prominence. So you have the nationalists who were working for a restoration of the kingdom of Israel outside of the rule of Rome -- aligning themselves with the Herodians, who embraced Roman rule. It's been said that this alliance is sort of like the Patriots and the Tories or Loyalists coming together during the era of the American Revolution. The Patriots fighting for autonomy, the Loyalists advocating for continuing under British rule. Two enemies joining together to fight against a more immediate enemy. And in this case, the immediate enemy that they joined forces to fight was Jesus. His teaching. His radical grace. His inclusion of the outcast. His willingness to accept sinners. His emphasis on salvation that is free. His criticism of the structures and institutions that weren't fulfilling the purpose for which God had created them -- and maybe most offensive of all -- a message of God's love for the World that transcended little ol' Israel. Jesus was a threat. A threat to their power. A threat to their legitimacy. A threat to all that they've known. And so the Pharisees and Herodians form an alliance to fight against this immediate threat. And that alliance plays itself out as they confront Jesus in our text today. Well as we consider this confrontation, allow me to share a couple of thoughts:First, notice how the Pharisees & Herodians try to entrap Jesus.V. 13 - they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Jesus to catch him in his words.The word that Mark chooses here that is translated as “catch” is a hunting word that describes a hunter catching his prey unaware. Stalking the animal and catching it off-guard. Interestingly, Matthew uses a different word. He also chooses a hunting-related word -- but he uses the word for a snare. Setting the snare and waiting for the prey to come and get trapped. And what is of particular interest is the bait that they try to use. Look at verse 14 - “we know that you are true and do not care about anyone's opinion. For you are not swayed by appearances, but truly teach the way of God.” They use flattery to try to draw Jesus into the trap.Now, this would work for you and me. If we were in Jesus' situation, we would be intoxicated by the flattery. We would say, you know what, I AM true….I DON'T care about anyone's opinion. I'm NOT swayed by appearances. I truly DO teach the way of God.” We would be flattered. We would be drawn right into the trap. But, of course, Jesus doesn't take the bait. He cannot be tricked. But we have to admit that the scenario with which Jesus is presented is a clever one. It's like they have been waiting for this moment since their first meeting in Chapter 3 -- and now they're ready to pounce. And they back Jesus into a corner and present him with what appears to be a lose-lose situation.What are the two options with which Jesus is presented? Pay the tax or refuse to pay the tax. The particular tax that they ask about is probably a tax that would have been paid by subjects of Rome, but not Roman citizens. This was, as you can imagine, unpopular among the citizenry. So here's the predicament:If Jesus says that the tax should be paid, he will be accused of despising the Nation of Israel, God's treasured possession, and showing favor to Rome. If Jesus says that the tax should NOT be paid, those friendly to the Romans will charge him with sedition. So it's quite a situation. In their minds, they think they've set up a simple either-or that will end in Jesus' being executed with either answer. But, as we know, it doesn't go as planned. So, the Pharisees and Herodians try to entrap Jesus:Second, Jesus makes clear that we are subject to both God and Government.V. 15 - But, knowing their hypocrisy, he said to them, “Why put me to the test? Bring me a denarius and let me look at it.” 16 And they brought one. And he said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?” They said to him, “Caesar's.” 17 Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's.”Jesus asks for them to bring him a denarius. A denarius was a silver coin that was worth approximately the daily wages for a worker. Archeology has shown us that it's quite likely that the coin that they handed Jesus would have had the image of Tiberius Caesar engraved on the front of it. And around the image of Caesar would be the inscription in Latin, “Tiberius Caesar Augustus, son of the Divine Augustus.” And, so, Jesus matter of factly says, “Whose image is this?” And when they acknowledge that it is Caesar's image, Jesus promptly says, “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar's…”And with this statement, Jesus blows their minds...or, as Mark says, leaves them Amazed. He had, somehow, found a way out of their trap. The Pharisees couldn't accuse him of being Anti-Israel. And the Herodians couldn't accuse him of sedition. But Jesus did more than simply blow the minds of these two misguided and self-serving political parties. He also gave legitimacy to the place and function of secular and even pagan human governments. Jesus lays the foundation for an understanding of the role of the state that would be by both Paul and Peter throughout the rest of the New Testament. Jesus gives us a lens through which we can evaluate our interaction with the governing authorities. He makes it clear that we are subject to both the Government and to God. In other words, Jesus says, “You are not sovereign.” None of us like to hear that, do we? The new testament's teaching on this can be best articulated by four main passages. Jot these down if you're a note take because I'm just going to give you the 10,000-foot flyover. First, Romans 13:1-7 - Here's an excerpt, starting in verse 1: Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.Second, 1 Timothy 2:1-6 - I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior….” Third, Titus 3:1 - “Remind them to be submissive to rules and authorities…”Fourth, 1 Peter 2:13-17 - “Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15 For it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. 16 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God's slaves. 17 Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.” Four pretty clear and convincing passages that expand on Jesus' teaching. What is our posture to be toward whatever government that we find ourselves living under?Let me distill it down into a few quick bullet points:First - you and I are not sovereign. As much as your Libertarian friends will tell you otherwise, you have no Biblical entitlement to live your life free from government control.Second - governments that exist have been instituted by God. Whether for your liking and benefit, or for your sanctification and patient faithfulness and trust in God, any government that exists is instituted by God. To deny that is to call God a liar. Third - Our posture is to submit or subject ourselves to governmental authority unless to do so conflicts with our submission to God.Fourth - Those who don't submit to governmental authority, so long as the law doesn't conflict with your submission to God, are living in rebellion against God, not just against the government. Fifth - our language should be respectful and in keeping with who we are and who we represent. Surely if Peter can tell 1st century Christians to honor and submit to Emperor Nero, we can take the same posture today. Our ULTIMATE allegiance and submission is to God. Always. But that doesn't take away from the reality that Jesus calls us to also live in such a way that we honor and submit to the authorities that he has placed over us. Now, I know that some of you don't like this. And some of you are probably coming up with reasons in your mind why Jesus and Paul and Peter are speaking to someone else, but not you. But don't be quick to write off what scripture says. Think about how forceful Paul is on this issue. Paul, who would later be imprisoned and executed by the Roman Government, says that if we resist the authorities that God has appointed, that we incur judgment. This is a serious matter. Our part of the country is heavily influenced by neo-conservative populism which has made its money criticizing the government and promoting resistance. And I simply wouldn't be faithful to my call if I didn't echo the words of Paul and the words of Peter and the Words of Jesus. That as much as we might think that we are sovereign -- as much as we might decry government over-reach -- as much as we might be tempted to think that politicians are fair game for slander -- the scriptures teach something very different. The Bible doesn't make this easy for us, because the Bible is as concerned with your sin of slandering Joe Biden as it is with every other sin. We need to wrestle with these words of Jesus and Paul and Peter. We need to struggle.And here's the thing -- I don't have to answer to God someday for how much you like a sermon or how much you dislike a sermon -- but I do have to answer for whether I called the church to repent of sin and live in the grace of God. We are subject to BOTH Government and to God. The way that Jesus answers their hypocritical question extends beyond just whether we are subject to God or Government. It forces us to ask deeper questions. Jesus doesn't simply say “Give to Caesar what is Caesar's…” and then stop.Jesus' response invites the Pharisees, the Herodians, and us today to consider who it is that bears God's image and inscription. That coin bears Caesar's image and belongs to Caesar -- but all humanity bears God's image and, therefore, belongs to God. Now it might be easy for you to see yourself and your family and people who think like you and act like you and look like you as image-bearers. But what about your enemies? They too bear the image of God and belong to him. What about those you adamantly disagree with over politics. They too bear the image of God and belong to him. What about those who represent a worldview that you find foolish, offensive, or even immoral. They too bear the image of God and belong to him. You see, Jesus had every religious, social, and moral reason to reject Levi while he was at his tax booth committing extortion. Instead, he saw his own image -- and he offered him God's mercy and grace. Jesus had every religious, social, and moral reason to reject the woman at the well for her immoral and unbiblical behavior. Instead, he saw his own image and offered her God's mercy and grace. I have become increasingly concerned with the way that some Christians have been speaking about those with whom they disagree. Taking our cues from the media, I have witnessed evangelicals become perfectly ok with -- and actually celebrate -- slander, among other sins. I have witnessed people who claim the name of Christ respond in absolute anger and indignation over issues that have Caesar's inscription all over them. Let me say something shocking. Get out your pens, write this down. Anger and slander are NOT fruits of the spirit. Ok, it wasn't insightful and shocking. It's obvious, right? Let me say that again in case you were sleeping. Anger and slander are not fruits of the spirit. And so when you rant about whatever it is that we're told to be ranting about this week. Or when you slandering whoever it is that you are being told to slander this week -- let's just all agree that it isn't the spirit who is producing that within us. These are the same responses of the Pharisees and the Herodians. Anger, Slander. God's people are not angry people. God's people are not wringing their hands, triggered every time they turn on the television. God's people are not lying awake at night fretting over things that belong to Caesar.Here's the reality -- countless American Christians are living their lives in slavery to Caesar. Spending untold hours fretting and sweating and cussing and worrying over things that don't even belong to the Kingdom of God. I want to ask you a question. Is your life marked by the deep, abiding, peace of God and trust in His providence, come what may? Or are you angry, unsettled, and afraid? If I were to ask those closest to you -- would they say that the outpouring of your life proclaims that Jesus is ultimate -- or that American politics are ultimate? An over-investment in things that belong to Caesar will always hinder what we are willing to give to God. We forget WHO we are and WHOSE we are. We so easily forget that we carry the image of God -- and we forget that everyone else that we come in contact with also bears the image of God. Anger, Slander, and many other sinful responses come about when we forget that we were created in God's image -- and that the person that I disagree with was too.Why do we forget? Self-righteousness is intoxicating. And our self-righteousness, just like the Pharisees and the Herodians, always works to build job security. Our sinful nature is constantly comparing you to others, and coming up with reasons that you are better than this person or that person. And, at the same time, it works to blind us to our OWN sin. And so we need God's word to strip away any self-righteousness -- to strip away any sense of moral, cultural, ethnic, or socio-economic superiority. We need God's Law to destroy any bragging rights that we think we might have -- so that our only hope is in who we are and whose we are. Bearing the image of God and belonging to him. Give to Caesar what belongs to him. And give to God what belongs to HIM. And that is you. That is your life. That is your calendar and daily agenda. That is your dreams and passions. And it is control over your heart and over your affections. Give to God what belongs to him. Because he is trustworthy. Because he loves you more than you realize. I've mentioned before that Peter's witness of the events of Jesus' life and ministry are the source of Mark's Gospel. Consider how Peter, in 1 Peter chapter 1 instructs those believers to live. 1 Peter 1:17 - Since you call on a Father who judges each person's work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. 18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.Live out your time as FOREIGNERS here -- Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar. Because you've been redeemed. Because Jesus purchased you with his blood. Because this isn't your home -- Because you're just here sent as an ambassador, proclaiming the hope of a better world that is coming. Because you are not your own. The Gospel frees us -- The Gospel sets us free to give to Caesar what is Caesar's. And even to SUBMIT to Caesar. To Honor Caesar. And then to Give to God what is God's. Because the Gospel delivers us from our slavery to this world and fixes our eyes on our true and eternal identity and home. You are not your own. You were created in the image of God. And you were redeemed from your sin at great cost. And now you are free. Free to submit, free to serve, free to love, free to show abundant and undeserved grace. And free to give to Caesar what is caesar's and to God what is gods.
For much of its history, the United States kept the rest of the world at arm's length. What happened in the decades after the 1941 military strike on Pearl Harbor, and several years after the 9/11 attacks, could be seen as an aberration.The sudden, chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, the Taliban takeover, and resulting humanitarian disaster may lead to another American foreign policy shift, plus a far greater reluctance to deploy U.S. forces overseas. While isolationism is derided by policy experts and global elites, this movement has a surprisingly enduring legacy. We examine it here.Charles Kupchan is a professor of international relations at Georgetown University and a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. "Isolationism: A History of America's Efforts to Shield Itself from the World" is his most recent book. We share extracts from an interview with Charles by Justin Kempf, host of the Democracy Group podcast, "Democracy Paradox"."Beginning in the 1990s, and then really picking up after 9/11, the United States overreached ideologically by thinking it could turn Iraq and Afghanistan into Ohio, says Charles. "Suddenly, I think, Americans said to themselves and to their leaders, ‘Wait a minute. Too much world, not enough America.'"Also in this episode: Jim and Richard share their views on the Afghan collapse and offer several solutions for American foreign policy.Recommendation: Jim is watching "Unforgotten", a widely-praised British crime drama television series, starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Baskkar.

In this episode, I'm joined by special guest Mary Tamura and her daughter Barbara. Mary, a Nisei, or first generation born Japanese-American, shares her family's experiences of being forcibly removed from their home in Southern California, transported, and incarcerated in Arizona's Gila Japanese-American Relocation Camp after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941. Facing racial prejudice and oppression, Mary and her family's deep sense of faith, family and community carried them through years of uncertainty. Mary's decision to take advantage of a new federal program - the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps - changed the trajectory of her life. Mary reflects on her historical journey with grace and resolve. She's joined by her daughter Barbara, who shares how she learned of her family's history, and how that's shaped her own life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOTXPFfU9zU

Eric grew up as an only child in West Los Angeles. He loved going to the movies growing up and he made his own short films with kids from the neighborhood. His mom worked at a bank near 20th Century Fox and though one of her clients got Eric a set visit to The Towering Inferno on the day they blew up the building. It was an eye opening experience in many ways. He went on to attend UCLA for film school and earned a Master's degree where he made a complicated short film involving stop-motion monsters and live action. After school Eric worked as an intern for the camera union. The internship exposed him to all kinds of opportunities working for a short stint at Apogee and Universal Heartland which was doing work on the TV series Buck Rogers. He worked for a time at Doug Trumball's while they were working on Blade Runner. While there he met Rocco Gioffre who went off and started Dream Quest Images (with Scott Squires, Hoyt Yeatman, Fred Iguchi, Tom Hollister and Bob Hollister). They needed a matte cameraperson and Eric was the right fit for the job. He worked on Lost Boys, Scrooged and other films as VFX Supervisor. Peter Anderson, who Eric met on Buck Rogers, would up taking over as the head of Disney visual effects and he hired Eric to work on a 3D project called Magic Journeys for Epcot. Eric had always been fascinated with 3D and even build his own system for creating stereo imagery as a kid. With this gig he was off and running, solving unforeseen problems for production and on a successful trajectory. After working on Total Recall for Dream Quest, Eric was hired by ILM to come work as Supervisor on Hook for Steven Spielberg. Eric worked at ILM for fifteen years on some massive projects. Over the years he's worked with filmmakers like Spielberg, Michael Bay, Roland Emerich, Barry Sonnenfeld, Brian De Palma, Barry Levinson, James Cameron, and Frank Oz (to name a few). Eric's visual effects credits include; The Abyss, Total Recall, Hook, Disclosure, The Indian in the Cupboard, Men in Black, Wild Wild West, Pearl Harbor, The Island, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and many others. As Director he's made the films; Journey to the Center of the Earth and Yogi Bear. Eric's enthusiasm for filmmaking and visual effects is infectious. Along the way he's been helped by others and he's payed it forward for people he's worked with, promoting colleagues on films where he's been a key decision maker. It was great fun to talk to Eric and hear about his amazing career.
We don't cover many comedies on The Bloody Pit for various reasons but 1941 (1979) ticks off many boxes for genre fans that makes it nearly perfect for discussion. Toshiro Mifune and Christopher Lee as bickering military leaders trapped together in a submarine? Is this a humorous variation on HELL IN THE PACFIC (1968) hiding in plain sight? Mark Maddox joins me to dig into our mutual fascination with this much criticized epic of American madness and wartime paranoia. Told before production that they should make a serious World War II film on the subject instead of a comedy, Spielberg and his team forged ahead with their warped vision of post-Pearl Harbor attack fears. It's an ambitious tale with dozens of characters and multiple storylines that slowly escalates into a long December night of chaos and violence. I'm sure that a serious movie about this historical incident could be made but I'm so glad that this farce exists in its place. 1941 is one of my favorite comedies of all time and I never cease to laugh at the insanity every time I watch it. Using the sprawling template of IT'S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD (1964) we are given a scenario ripe with potential sparks while the plot scatters metaphorical open barrels of gasoline around to how they explode in flames. Combining oddball comedic characters with characters that are taking the spiraling events seriously keeps the entire affair grounded enough to seem believable and suspenseful enough to be thrilling. The nutty folks' antics never overpower the forward momentum of the wild story even in the extended version of the film that Mark and I discuss. We talk about our first encounters with the film, its effect on us at the time and how popular opinion of it has changed over the years. We dig into the huge cast of amazing actors and debate some of the performances. The topic of the John Williams score is broached with a snippet or two of the music inserted into the show and we marvel at the amazing miniature work in the film's climax. We do get off-track at least once trying to decide what Spielberg's worst movie might be. As usual, Mark is wrong! If you know which Spielberg film is the weakest the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org where we'd love to hear from you. And if you think Mark and I should just bash in each other's heads and call it a day – let us know that too! Thanks for listening to the show.
Today we talk again about Wild Bill Donovan's COI and OSS, as well as BSC's Camp X training site. Then we discuss the infiltration of the WRUL and KGEI radio stations by BSC, which included almost total control of information by British agents; it was handed over to US intelligence. Then we talk about the OWI - Office of War Information, the agency in charge of non-black propaganda, the relationship between OSS and SIS, and a frank assessment of Allen Dulles as spy re Fritz Kolbe. I call out some historians, which is reckless; then we talk about US foreknowledge of the Pearl Harbor attack, of which there's additional evidence of it via the BSC. Finally, we talk about Gallup polling and it's relationship to spying and population control. It's good stuff, and this is all before Operation Mockingbird even gets started. Check it out.

A concise, accessible account of strategy and the Second World War, Strategy and the Second World War: How the War Was Won, and Lost (Robinson, 2021), by renowned Historian Jeremy Black offers up a new look at this somewhat tired subject. In 1941, the Second World War became global, when Nazi Germany attacked the Soviet Union; Japan attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor; and Germany declared war on the United States. In this timely book, which fills a real gap, Black engages with the strategic issues of the time - as they developed chronologically, and interacted - and relates these to subsequent debates about the choices made, revealing their continued political resonances. Beginning with Appeasement and the Soviet-German pact as key strategic means, Black examines the consequences of the fall of France for the strategies of all the powers. He shows how Allied strategy-making was more effective at the Anglo-American level than with the Soviet Union, not only for ideological and political reasons, but also because the Americans and British had a better grasp of the global dimension. He explores how German and Japanese strategies evolved as the war went badly for the Axis powers, and discusses the extent to which seeking to mold the post-war world informed Allied strategic choices from 1943 onwards, and the role these played in post-war politics, notably in the Cold War. Strategy was a crucial tool not only for conducting the war; it remains the key to understanding it today. In short, Strategy and the Second World War is both educational and enjoyable look at this always interesting topic. A book for both the academic and the lay educated public. Charles Coutinho Ph. D. of the Royal Historical Society, received his doctorate from New York University. His area of specialization is 19th and 20th-century European, American diplomatic and political history.
