Shadows of War tells the story of World War II as few Americans know it.


In the mid-1930s a high school history teacher inspires a student to look beyond his small hometown. He becomes a Foreign Service officer, and they then anchor a World War II story that provides perspectives little known to Americans.

On air raids over , American crews must fly 1,200 miles on creatively named planes such as Wingo-Wango and Jersey Bounce at just 50 feet off the deck to launch attacks on the stoutly defended oil refineries at . In and a mild-mannered father of seven becomes a resistance leader after the Japanese invasion, and four gutsy nuns who serve as nurses try to stay a step ahead of the brutal conquerors.
