New book reveals censorship’s perils By Dave Zweifel, Capital Times (Madison WI) Dec. 27, 2006.
The book is First Into Nagasaki by George Weller and Anthony Weller
George Weller was a Pulitzer Prizeâ€“winning reporter who covered World War II across Europe, Africa, and Asia. At the warâ€™s end in September 1945, under General MacArthurâ€™s media blackout, correspondents were forbidden to enter both Nagasaki and Hiroshima. But instead of obediently staying with the press corps in northern Japan, Weller broke away. The intrepid newspaperman reached Nagasaki just weeks after the atomic bomb hit the city. Boldly presenting himself as a U.S. colonel to the Japanese military, Weller set out to explore the devastation.
