On the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor Attack, nationally recognized radio host Dr. James Dobson conducted a two-day interview with author T. Martin Bennett. Response to these programs, which aired on over 1,100 stations nationwide, was overwhelming. The day following their airing, Amazon was backordered for weeks.

From the Author

The most common question I receive is how I came across this story. From an early age, I’ve always loved true stories and, some years ago, I stumbled across an out of print book from a defunct publisher about the pilot who led the Pearl Harbor Attack. This began three years of research where, the more I dug, the better the story got. I knew this was one of the greatest unknown stories that I felt compelled to write about.

Endorsements and Reviews

You described my father’s posture and behavior so well and so precisely, I could feel his presence. Some will call him a villain, others will call him a proud warrior who found redemption. I will always admire his guts, his intellect, and his sincerity.

Wounded Tiger is an amazing, enthralling story of how the once obscure lives of an Oregon farmhand and a young co-ed intersected with the Japanese pilot who led the attack on Pearl Harbor. With cultural insight and deep pathos, Martin Bennett brings to life this powerful true chronicle of hatred, surrender, and transformation. Wounded Tiger reveals how ordinary lives lived out faithfully to their calling can impact the destiny of a people and a nation. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin’s work and know that you will find it equally compelling.

My goodness, what a story! As a die-hard researcher, I’m phenomenally impressed. This is a manuscript I personally love . . . and it has outstanding potential . . . I feel this book is going to sell very well.

How could death and destruction at Pearl Harbor end on a note like this? Here is a man who was a warrior, right at the center of world activities, at Pearl Harbor, and was on the scene, and went through the whole war and survived, and went on to become a Christian. There's so much to this story. I strongly recommend that people read Wounded Tiger!
