The Secret Prison Diary of Frank ‘Foo’ Fujita
By Frank Fujita
Fujita’s memoirs are unique because of the six thousand Japanese-Americans who saw military service in the war against Japan, only two were captured by the Japanese. Fujita, a Texan, was the only Japanese-American combat soldier taken prisoner by the Japanese. For him, capture involved the implicit threat of torture and execution as a traitor to Japan. Fujita was also a prolific diarist who regularly, and secretly, kept a written record of his experiences. Fujita also made drawings, which are included in the book. 390 pages, 6x9, paperback. BRAND NEW, shrink-wrapped.
