James Cameron is going to have to find another author to pen his next anti-American tirade.
Please edit the redundancy in you headline.
James Cameron was going to turn this into an anti-American film and in his words make it an uncompromising look at Hiroshima. Oh, how brave of you James. It would probably push the same ridiculous historical revisionism that says the US didn’t need to drop the bombs because the Japanese were about to surrender. Bull!
"It is with deep regret that Henry Holt and Company announces that we will not print, correct or ship copies of Charles Pellegrino's `The Last Train from Hiroshima,'" the publisher said in a statement issued to the AP."
It's all made-up anti-American liberal BS.
Good for the publisher to drop this
This makes me especially happy if this stops his revisionist history or an act that was indeed necessary to end the war.
I know Pellegrino. He’s not a liberal. I’ve also been reading his Hiroshima book, and so far it’s not an anti-American screed. He’s admitted that he got taken by one of his sources, and that part of the book is weak. I don’t know what’s going on here, but he’s not a bad guy, IMHO.
Liberal view of history = ‘fake but accurate’.
The titles and subjects of some of the books this guy wrote grabbed my attention a while back so I checked out several of them from my local library.I remember thinking that some of these sound like they were written by someone with about as much experience in the subject as I had. The science and the conclusions to my layman’s mind just didn’t make sense, but I am far from any expertise in any of the hard sciences so I shrugged it off. I read through most of his Titanic book and wondered how he got the information that he asserted but otherwise found it interesting as he provided “scientific” explanations of why certain things happened or didn’t happen. The other books that he wrote prior to “the last train” just seem to wishy-washy and bizarre.
I did check out “the Last train from Hiroshima” from my local library a few weeks ago and as I recall I didn’t think there was a whole lot of anti-American bias in the book. Most of it was actually interesting as it dealt with how some people survived and others didn’t. Yet as I read it I kept thinking the information and factual assertions that he presented is a little too good to be true. I also kept wondering is the science in this book was actually correct.
I guess the fact that the book is been pulled actually reaffirms my “faith” in current publication standards. until today I hadn’t seen any assertions that what he published was wrong.
So a liberal write a novel and claims it is non fiction? Sure wouldn’t be the first one!
Is this the same guy who wrote the “Unearthing Atlantis” rubbish?
The guy didn’t answer the questions the way they him to. How surprising. More propaganda.
