    Hillenbrand has broken the unwritten code for Americans to downplay the wrongs of the Japanese during World War II other than Pearl Harbor in favor of focusing on the egregious acts of the Nazis My education in World War II history has focused on the Holocaust and the unforgivable damage we did to Japan by unleashing the atomic bomb I appreciate all the research Hillenbrand did to bring us the other side of the story.Louis Zamperini is my new he...
