Japanese-American soldiers homecoming 1945
Article Surfer
<— Prev    |    Next —>

Who knows, maybe the author of Bad Day at Black Rock, Howard Breslin, had read this striking bit of fiction from YANK and felt such a deep sense of social injustice that it inspired him to write his novel about anti-Isei mob violence. Either way, this very moving, two column piece is a fictional account about the pathetic homecoming experienced by a member of the Nesei packed 442nd Regimental Combat Team.

It was written by Yank Magazine's Len Zinberg (1911 - 1968; a.k.a. Ed Lacy, a.k.a. Steve April); by that time, Zinberg was already an experienced writer with numerous credits to his name(s). His writings at Yank helped to open the door at the The New Yorker, where much of his work was to be seen following the end of hostilities.
