“Kurofune: The Black Ships: A Novel of World War II” is John Morrison’s first novel. John became fascinated with the stories and the legacy of the Marine’s island hopping strategy across the Central Pacific Ocean during World War II. In his view the battle honors of Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Saipan, Iwo Jima and many others may have been entrenched into the consciousness of the American people and the United States Marine Corp, but Saipan holds a special place of interest for the author after a visit there in 1974. The civilian horror that occurred during the final days of the Battle for Saipan left an indelible mark on his sense of humanity in the world. It is a tragedy that he feels most people are not aware of.”Kurofune” tells the story of that tragedy against a backdrop of nationalism, military fanaticism, heroism and self sacrifice. Yet Kurofune is also a love story, a war story, a story of redemption and a story of rebirth.
