One of Wilsonís best. A historical horror novel set in Japan, Hawaii, and
San Francisco from 1926 to 1945. He presents a revisionist history of the
Pacific theater of WW II. FDR provoked Japan into attacking Pearl Harbor and
prevented the people there from being warned about the attack. He demonstrates
the evil of the governments on both sides and the effects it has on the attitudes
of the major characters toward their own countries. He brings out the Japanese
point of view clearly. He shows the horror of the black wind is surpassed only
by the horror of the atom bomb.
