"Remembering Private Lamb", an engrossing tale about:
- A battle that shouldn't have been fought:
- A mystery, "The case of the wrong body;"
- A dangerous love affair;
- Super patriots and lunatic fringe;
- Devious governments, foreign and domestic.
Leon Cooper poses a provocative question: "Why hasn't Japan apologized for its war crimes, as Germany has done?" Read the answer in this tale of Japanese and American government duplicity that would make Machiavelli envious."
