An Okinawan Affair

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
An Okinawan Affair was written partly as a memoir and partly to tell about the people of Okinawa and what had happened on the island before repatriation back to Japan. And about the Americans who were stationed there in the military or chose to live on the island as civilians.
Most of the characters are profiles of real people or composites of several people the author knew on the island. More
