Thirty Minutes Over Oregon: A Japanese Pilot’s World War II Story

In this important and moving true story of reconciliation after war, beautifully illustrated in watercolor, a Japanese pilot bombs the continental U.S. during WWII—the only enemy ever to do so—and comes back 20 years later to apologize.

The devastating attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, drew the United States into World War II in 1941.

But few are aware that several months later, the Japanese pilot Nobuo Fujita dropped bombs in the woods outside a small town in coastal Oregon.

This is the story of those bombings, and what came after, when Fujita returned to Oregon twenty years later, this time to apologize.

This remarkable true story, beautifully illustrated in watercolor, is an important and moving account of reconciliation after war.
