Remembering our war with Japan

On this anniversary of Pearl Harbour Day I like to think of those who struggled against Japanese fascism long before it became a matter of life and death for our nation, those who flung themselves into the war without prompting and command, without social sanction, without, one might say, need. I think of the Rape of Nanking, and I think of The Flying Tigers.

This day I remember too those who flew into battle early, leading our whole nation by example.
