"On the day of the attack on Pearl Harbor, a battle damaged Japanese Zero landed on a remote, privately owned Hawaiian Island. The Zero pilot survived for almost a week on what locals call the 'Forbidden Island", assisted by a local worker while terrorizing the island's population before being killed by a native Hawaiian.
Though the air raid on December 7, 1941 caught many by surprise, the island's owner had actually begun preparations against the attack years earlier, inspired by a remarkably accurate prophecy. The wreckage of the Japanese plane was abandoned on the island, but its legacy was not forgotten. Sixty-five years later the Zero and the story surrounding it became part of a new aviation museum in Hawaii.
This book contains original reports as well as documents never before published that give unique perspectives into one of the most curious and thought provoking events of WWII."
