The purpose of my mission was to cause a big fire in the forest which would discourage American citizens to fight with Japan. To make them feel anxiety—therefore to make them feel [as if they should] stop fighting with us sooner. —Nobuo Fujita reflecting on his WW II mission to bomb the forest outside Brookings, Oregon

    I didn’t know a thing about him, and the whole of his history is fascinating. It’s interesting, too, that the Fujita scale is used to gauge the destructiveness of tornadoes — although there’s no connection between its developer and this fellow, apart from their names.

      I was unaware of the Fujita scale until now. Thanks for your educational comment and interest in this post.
