Overview

A nonfiction novel of the true story of the pilot who led the attack on Pearl Harbor, whose life was changed by an American prisoner and by a girl he never met. Includes 19 maps.

“Wounded Tiger is an amazing, enthralling story of how the once obscure lives of an Oregon farmhand and a young co-ed intersected with the Japanese pilot who led the attack on Pearl Harbor. With cultural insight and deep pathos, Martin Bennett brings to life this powerful true chronicle of hatred, surrender, and transformation. Wounded Tiger reveals how ordinary lives lived out faithfully to their calling can impact the destiny of a people and a nation. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin’s work and know that you will find it equally compelling.”

- Ravi Zacharias, bestselling author and international speaker

Meet the Author

My mom always told me that when I was a little boy, I rode my bike so far away my dad had to hide it; how I’d disappear only to be found inside an empty neighbor’s house trying to get their bird out; how I’d vanish in the department store and be discovered running in circles around the mannequins in the window; how the police brought me home from who knows where; how I got kicked out of nursery school (how do you get kicked out of nursery school?); and how she finally took me to the doctor to find out what was wrong with me. “He just runs away and disappears all the time! I can’t keep up with him! What do I do?” The doctor said, “If you told me your son sat in a chair and stared out the window all day, I’d feel sorry for you. The fact is, you have a healthy, smart, little boy. My advice to you is, when he runs, run after him!”

I was a music major, then a religious studies major, then dropped out of college, was VP of a very successful nonprofit organization with Keith Green (a best-selling recording artist), trained inmates in a federal prison for seven years, and cofounded Premier Pet Products, a company that grossed $20 million per year and went on to win a Presidential award of Entrepreneur of the Year from the Small Business Administration.

I have five wonderful kids. I’ve made millions and lived in poverty (in that order), but I’ve never lost my joy of life or my life in God. There’s a purpose and plan for each of us, and when you find it - run!

    T. Martin Bennett has woven together a mesmerizing World War II

    T. Martin Bennett has woven together a mesmerizing World War II tale. It is a true story about Mitsuo Fuchida, the Japanese naval commander who led the infamous aerial attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, and S/Sgt Jacob DeShazer, an American Doolittle Raider, who bombed Japan and spent 42 months as a Japanese POW. The confluence of events between these two warriors transformed Fuchida’s life.




    Following the war, Fuchida converted to Christianity and spent the remainder of his life as a Christian missionary. In 1952,he toured the United States, apologizing for his role in the bombing of Pearl Harbor. In 1960 he became an American citizen and he and DeShazer became lifelong friends.




    Bennett describes in detail the exhilaration Fuchida felt on the success of the Pearl Harbor bombing, followed by the anguish that consumed him over his participation, once he became a Christian. He also takes us into the hellhole DeShazer lived in as a Japanese prisoner for 42 months.




    Wounded Tiger is a story of brutal wartime experiences, followed by redemption, conversion and Christian love. It is a page-turner that leaves the reader breathless and unable to put the book down until the last page.
