I recently ran across what looks like an interesting book for those interested in the Pacific War – "Cage on the Sea" which is historical fiction about Japanese soldiers who hid on islands in the Pacific after the end of the war, refusing to believe their country had surrendered. The underlying story is true – the novel is historical fiction based on it.
The book has been met with favorable reviews in The Japan Times (http://www.japantimes.co.jp/culture/2014/05/03/books/book-reviews/homage-queen-anatahan/#.U-rqwa5cJGg) and by the Historical Novel Society (http://historicalnovelsociety.org/reviews/cage-on-the-sea/). Now, since August 14th marks the end of the anniversary of WWII, the publisher is running a sale on the book. The digital, Kindle edition of the novel, which normally costs $9.99, will be available for $1.99 on 12AM on August 14th. Following that the price of the book will go up one dollar every 23 hours. This is called a Kindle countdown sale, and the prices and availability are listed in the table below.
I'll post a review after I've read it, but it does look interesting.
