Summary, etc.:
"Among her late parents' belongings, Steinman discovers a rusty ammo box holding almost 500 letters written by her father during his service in World War II. It also contains a silk Japanese flag inscribed to Yoshio Shimizu. Reading the letters, Steinman finally understands what her silent, emotionally remote father experienced in combat. She also begins a decade-long search for Shimizu - a quest culminating in a trip to Japan to return the flag to his family. This is a powerful story of discovery, connection and reconciliation. Weaving together her father's letters, historical background, and examples of the political propoganda fed to soldiers on each side, Steinman creates a unique examination of both the personal and universal costs of war."--Cassette container.
