Flyboys - 1st Edition/1st Printing
A stunning First Edition/First Printing in unread As New condition in alike dust jacket, SIGNED by author James Bradley on the title page;
James Bradley's horrific story of complex war crimes involving nine WWII Flyboys, one who just happened to turn out to be the future President of the U. S. George H. W. Bush. Bradley's portrayal of the Japanese soldiers on Chichi Jima, who captured and held the Naval and Marine airmen prisoner, goes back to a mystery unfolding 150 years before WWII. As American policy and culture expand ever westward, the Japanese are forced to confront the emerging powerhouse of a nation. Bradley uses this backdrop of Japanese warrior mentality to somehow help explain the terrible emergence of violence and savagery which ended the lives of these young American men. War crimes so great that top secret military tribunals deemed the records shut for the good of both countries.
