Deeply researched and movingly told, Mark Obmascik’s The Storm on Our Shores is an intimate tale of tragedy and redemption. The true story follows two World War II soldiers—a Japanese surgeon and an American sergeant—set during a brutal Alaskan battle in which the sergeant discovers the medic’s revelatory and fascinating diary that ultimately changed some Americans’ perception of Japan.

The Storm on Our Shores is a national bestseller; the story it tells was featured on the television program 60 Minutes earlier this year. Additionally, artifacts related to this story are currently on display at JANM. Join Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Obmascik for a discussion about this book followed by a Q&A and book signing.
