Jack Seward was a World War II veteran who was assigned to Military Intelligence in 1941 because of his knowledge of Japanese, at a time when very few Americans knew the language. After some time in US service in the military and later CIA, he worked with a number of companies and became a prolific writer. Some of his 45 books, in Japanese and English, are still used today.[1]
