About this title


According to the articles of the Geneva Convention, hospitals, hospital ships, and medical facilities are not to be subjected to enemy attacks during the war time. On April 28, 1945, 50 miles south of Okinawa a Japanese kamikaze pilot ignored this fact and crashed his plane into the U.S. Navy hospital ship Comfort. This book gives a complete account of the attack and the repercussions that followed.

About the Author:

Dale Harper is a veteran of World War II and Korea. During World War II he served in the Navy as a radar man aboard LST671 (Landing Ship, tanks) in the South Pacific area of operations. During the Korean conflict he served aboard a troop transport, taking combat troops to Korea and evacuating the seriously wounded.

After his war time service, he used his G.I. Bill to attend the University of Notre Dame from which he graduated in 1955 with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1955 and a Master of Arts degree in 1956.

He then taught in the public school system of South Bend, Indiana, for 32 years before retiring in 1988. He now spends the summer months in his home state of Maine and the winter months in Florida.
