Hiroshima. Dresden. London. Brookings?

Americans know the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, as one of the most infamous events of World War II. However, few on either side know that Japan also bombed mainland America—twice.

Navy pilot Nobuo Fujita launched a seaplane off a submarine—via catapult—and hit the woods outside the town of Brookings, Oregon. No one was killed or even hurt, but all involved were changed.

Twenty years later, amid a blaze of controversy, Brookings invited Nobuo back. Though nervous, he felt it was his duty to say yes. He brought his family’s 400-year-old samurai sword, the same he had taken on every war mission. Always a man of honor and now a man of peace, he planned to gift it to the town. Thirty Minutes Over Oregon recounts this remarkable true story of reconciliation after war.

Join author Marc Nobleman for a discussion about this book followed by a Q&A and book signing.
