Overview

While most soldiers' accounts of war involve danger, hardship, loss, triumph, Tetsuo (1910-89) tells about military comfort women, cabaret dancers, the military secret service, missionaries, and such during his service in China. He was, after all, a gynecologist. The photographs are not typical either. The memoir includes no notes or index. No mention is made of a Japanese edition. Gold is a writer and translator living in Japan. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
