A member of the Salem Athenæum, Hale Bradt is a Korean War veteran and an astrophysicist retired from M.I.T. who once searched for black holes, but turned to searching for family and wartime history. He has been intrigued by the Bradt family story for more than three decades: interviewing relatives, academic and military colleagues, and a Japanese officer against whom his father fought in the Solomon Islands. As a history buff and one who remembers WWII, Bradt is well qualified to provide a new context about a country at war.
