Escape From Manchuria Book
Our past president,
Paul Maruyama, has written a book, Escape from Manchuria which
we invite you to purchase and read. It is a compelling story. You can
buy the book in either hardcover or paperback at Amazon or at iUniverse.
So, what is the
book about? Quoting from the press release: "In the closing days of
WWII, the Soviet Union attacked and occupied
Japanese-controlled northern China, then called Manchuria. Immediately,
misery and death from cold, hunger, disease, and brutality descended
upon the Japanese civilians at the hands of the Soviet Army and
revenge-seeking mobs and bandits. Nearly 2,500 Japanese died daily.
"Three courageous men embarked on a secret mission and escaped to Japan
to eventually bring an end to the Manchurian nightmare. In Escape from
Manchuria (published by iUniverse), Paul K. Maruyama, Lt. Col., USAF
(Retired), the son of one of the three men, narrates for Western
readers the compelling true story of the rescue and repatriation of
nearly 1.7 million Japanese that began almost a year after the
surrender of Japan."
