From the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of the W. E. B. Griffin novels comes a rollicking story of love, war, and adventure. As the author of the electrifying W. E. B. Griffin novels of the military, police, and spies and counterspies, William E. Butterworth III has been delighting readers for decades--but he has a special treat for them now. At the tender age of sixteen, Philip W. Williams III is expelled from boarding school for committing a prank, and on the train home wonders where his life will take him now. It never enters his mind that he will become a special agent of the U.S. Army Counterintelligence Corps in postwar Germany, play a key role in the defection of a Soviet officer and then work for the CIA, marry a ferocious Austrian ballet dancer, become a renowned bestselling novelist, and meet the love of his life on a hunting trip. Yet all of this, and much more, awaits him, in a raucous series of adventures that will have readers laughing, cheering, and propulsively turning the pages to discover what happens next.

The events of December 7, 1941, rocked the lives of people around the world. The bombing of Pearl Harbor had intimate repercussions, too, especially in the territory of Hawaii. In Love and War recounts the wartime experiences of author Melody M. Miyamoto Walters’s grandparents, two second-generation Japanese Americans, or Nisei, living in Hawaii. Their love story, narrated in letters they wrote each other from July 1941 to June 1943, offers a unique view of Hawaiian Nisei and the social and cultural history of territorial Hawaii during World War II. Drawing on her grandparents’ letters, Miyamoto Walters fleshes out what it meant to live and work on the islands of Kauai, Oahu, and Hawaii during the war years. Although to outsiders, twenty-somethings Yoshiharu Ogata and Naoko Tsukiyama were both “Japs,” the couple came from different socioeconomic classes and cultures. Naoko, the author’s grandmother, hailed from a prosperous Honolulu merchant family, whereas Yoshiharu grew up poor, part of the laboring class on a sugar plantation on Kauai. Their courtship was riddled with challenges. He stayed on Oahu, then moved to Kauai; she moved to the Big Island. Yoshiharu faced the possibility of being drafted into the military. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, they both lived under martial law. Some Americans, operating under nativist and xenophobic beliefs, questioned Japanese Americans’ loyalty to the United States. But, as the letters collected here show, the Nisei were patriots. Naoko and Yoshiharu spoke English, participated in the YMCA and the USO, and taught in public schools. They embraced American popular culture—quoting lines of pop songs in their correspondence—and celebrated both Japanese and American traditions. Through their experiences, Miyamoto Walters shows how Japanese Americans’ negotiation of race, ethnicity, and cultural space in wartime indelibly shaped Hawaii’s postwar economic, political, and social landscape.

When James Hewitt, a young, brave and gifted soldier, first met Diana, Princess of Wales, he was a young Household Cavalry captain on official business at Buckingham Palace. He was single and alone; she a lonely wife, hurt by a loveless marriage. He supported and cared for her during one of the most troubled times of her life. When news of their affair hit the headlines, James’s life changed dramatically and irreversibly. Used by the Royal Family as a scapegoat for their own uncaring treatment of Diana and cast as the villain of the piece by the newspapers, Hewitt rapidly became one of the most reviled men in the country and remained so for the next ten years. Yet, in a remarkable reversal of fortune, James proved his resilience, rebuilt his life and made a new career for himself both as a civilian and as a celebrity. In 2003, he rose to the challenge of appearing on Channel 4’s The Games. His personality and determination won the nation over – he came second and raised a large sum of money for charity. James’s popularity was cemented when he won the reality TV show Back to Reality. With his celebrity status confirmed, James Hewitt moved on to a new stage of his life and career, ready, as always, to take on the next challenge. As he himself says, ‘I am a forward-thinking character. I don’t want to look back. I accept that not everything I have done has been right. If I have made mistakes I’m sorry about that, but I am moving on.’ His candid autobiography stands in tribute to his charm, good humour and strength of character – and as a tribute to the love that meant so much to Diana at a difficult time.
