A YANK MAGAZINE reporter recalls the day that the American Army authorities came to arrest the former Prime Minister of Imperial Japan, General Hideko Tojo (1884 - 1948). Tojo served as Japan's Prime Minister between 1941 and 1944 and is remembered for having ordered the attack on the American naval installation at Pearl Harbor (December 7, 1941), as well as the invasions of many other Western outposts in the Pacific. He was removed from office by Emperor Hirohito (1901 1989) in the summer of 1944 for his incompetence.

This article describes the efforts of Lt. Jack Wilpers who is credited for prolonging the life of Tojo after his amateur suicide attempt and seeing to it that the man kept his date with the hangman. Nominated for the Bronze Star, he was decorated in 2010: read THE WASHINGTON POST article.
