I promised that I am not justifying the Pacific War or any war in the first article of this series. Neither of this book promote any war or fighting activities. Today, bringing up the book's picture again and let me show it to you.
This book's picture is too small and written in Japanese. But, it read in the side belt shown on the top of the book "I will survive and return back to my wife's place, my daughter's side." The back side of the side belt says "I never volunteer to be "Tokko -Suicide Attack". Because I promised my wife I will survive and come back to my family."
This story is not about the war. Neither is about the killing. Neither is the "Suicide Bombing". It is the fight of a Zero Fighter Pilot who tried his best to survive the Pacific War.
The story starts with a young student who failed examination to become lawyer in Japan. He received a phone call from his older sister that she is trying to find facts about their real grandfather. They have known that their grandfather is not the father of their mother. Their mother was told from her step father that her real father was a Zero Fighter Pilot.
Their mother loved her step father, but still wanted to learn more about her real father. Her daughter and son started to research about him. His name was Kyuzo Miyabe. He was a lieutenant in his last rank. After intensive search, the sister and brother could meet one of their grand father's fellow soldier. This ex-Zero Fighter Pilot told them that their grandfather was coward and strange..
