08/10/10 – Anthony Weller – The Scott Horton Show

by | Aug 10, 2010 | Interviews

Anthony Weller, editor of First Into Nagasaki: The Censored Eyewitness Dispatches on Post-Atomic Japan and Its Prisoners of War, discusses his father’s (George Weller) WWII reporting for the Chicago Daily News, George’s defiance of Gen. MacArthur’s travel restrictions in post-war southern Japan, firsthand accounts of radiation poisoning (Disease X) in Nagasaki, the severe mistreatment of prisoners in Japanese POW camps and how military censorship and George’s haphazard record-keeping kept the Nagasaki dispatches unpublished for 60 years.
