Summary

Summary

The Allied Military Governor's remarkable story of the rebuilding of Japan's business and industry after WWII. The author details the transformation of a tough-minded American businessman, Commander Wallace L. Higgins, who was, like many Americans, shocked and resentful because of Japan's military atrocities. After defeating the Japanese judo champ five days after landing in Japan with Occupation Forces, Wally Higgins won the admiration of his hosts. He learned to appreciate and admire the Japanese people with whom he dealt.
