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.
