Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a list of 17 letters written during the period January 1949- May 1950. Some of the letters are William Richards Castle to Kichisaburo Nomura, Nomura to Moore, Nomura to Morgan, Nomura to Kern, and Nomura to Ralph Oftsie. The chapter presents a memorandum written by Nomura to Moore, Nomura Wiliam Sebald and Nomura to Joy. The book is based on the recent discovery of the personal papers of Nomura, Japanese admiral, one-time foreign minister, pre-Pearl Harbor ambassador to the United States, and "spiritual godfather" of postwar Japan's Maritime Self-Defense Force. It reproduces Nomura's occupation-era correspondence with his American friends and associates, including Navy Secretary Daniel Kimball, SCAP Political Advisor William Sebald, former ambassadors Castle and Joseph Grew, Army and Navy Journal owner John Callan O'Laughlin, as well as Admirals William Pratt, Arleigh Burke, Charles Turner Joy, Ralph Oftsie, and Harold Martin.
