Welcome to the intriguing world of an adventurous American spy who spent the 1920s and 1930s in alliance with the Japanese Royal Family and other top leaders of Japan, attempting to prevent war between their nations. This thrilling novel presents a real-life James Bond, Colonel Sidney Forrester Mashbir, a Master Spy who pioneered the beginning of the CIA, engaging secret diplomacy and dangerous missions to shape world events!
His long, fascinating, military career began in the early 1900s, continuing into the Atomic Age! This story is based on the acquisition of his never-before-revealed intimate letters, secret official documents, and photographs--combined with interviews and extensive research.
Mashbir (1891–1973) so embraced the Japanese language and culture, that he came to see himself as a samurai in spirit. He achieved a closer intimacy with Emperor Hirohito, than any Westerner! In spite of Mashbir and his allies' courageous, peace-keeping efforts, World War II erupted. Mashbir was then forced to defeat Japan, a nation and its people whom he had so befriended.

It would be sixty-five years from the end of World War Two for the thousands (mainly Nisei, Japanese Americans) serving under Colonel Mashbir's command in a Top Secret intelligence organization called A.T.I.S., to finally receive their deserved recognition for their major role in winning that conflict:
In 2010, President Barack Obama signed the bill awarding them the
Congressional Gold Medal, the nation's highest civilian honor
for their heroism and bravery in the face of the enemy.
In 2011, this Congressional Gold Medal ceremony was held in Washington
D.C., with three thousand guests, including several elderly Nisei who had
served in W.W.II...
Five U.S. Senators attended.
*This is the first novel to reveal Colonel Mashbir's leadership role during this dramatic time in history.*
