Japan is in ruins and occupied by the Americans. Hiroshima and Nagaskai have been destroyed. Takuya, an ex-officer in the Imperial Army, has returned to his native village only to learn that the Occupation authorities are intensifying their efforts to apprehend suspected war criminals. And those who are found guilty are being sentenced to death. Fearing that his involvement in the execution of a number of American pilots will be discovered, Takuya takes to the road and becomes a fugitive in his own country. One Man's Justice is a tale of timeless relevance that brings to mind two other classic anti-war novels - Bao Ninh's The Sorrow of War and Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front.
