A Japanese draftee, far from home, missing his young wife and two small children and the good career he had barely begun. The American forces stationed there would have been surprised to know this enemy soldier was not a trained killer but was only doing his duty, and, like most of them, wanted the war to end soon so they could all go home.This is a very different story, and yet one many war veterans can relate to. Most accounts of the war concentrate on the European theater and little has been written with the Pacific as a backdrop.

A jungle has its own harsh conditions apart from the combat itself: monsoon rains, oppressive heat, malaria, poisonous insects as well as snakes that can swallow a small farm animal whole. At that time there were also fierce tribal peoples who knew the Japanese were the enemy and considered hunting them to be great sport.Takashi Miyake has had a nearly ideal upbringing with unexpected opportunities along the way.

Because of his small stature and way with horses, he is chosen to train as a racing jockey. His promising career is cut short when he is inducted into the army. Miyake manages to survive the rigors of army life in a foreign land with his resourcefulness, humor, and the strong connection he has with those around him.An American GI in 1945 found the diary of a Japanese soldier.

The research done decades later revealed intriguing facts that lead to the creation of this story.
