We Were Kings
There was a time and a place where the American G.I. (soldier, sailor, airman and Marine) lived a life of luxury, good times and romance. The place was post-World War II Japan where American... More > servicemen enjoyed a lifestyle never known to common soldiers before or since. It was the period from the close of hostilities in August 1945 through the 1950’s. American G.I.s were rich men in an impoverished nation full of young fun-loving ladies. They were kings. The Japanese girls treated the Americans well. And they, in turn, were treated well by their G.I boy friends.
This is a love story. It is a tragic story, yet it is sprinkled with humorous anecdotes about the shenanigans of young American servicemen. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, and the unique surprise ending will leave you satisfied.
If you are a veteran of those fun-filled days in Japan, the author guarantees you will see yourself.< Less
