Ghost of War: The Sinking of the Awa Maru and Japanese American Relations, 1945-1995, by Roger Dingman
Annapolis: Naval Institute Press, 1997. xvii, 373 pp. Illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. $35.00. ISBN:1-55750-159-9.
A detailed, readable work about the accidental sinking by an American submarine of Awa Maru, a Japanese ship operating under a safe conduct from the U.S. in order to repatriate diplomatic personnel and carry relief parcels to Americans held prisoner by the Japanese, which touched off a small, but lively diplomatic flap which has repercussions to the present. An interesting work.
