9780816321346: Rainbow over Hell: The Death Row Deliverance of a World War II Assassin

"Perhaps it was destiny, but time and again, Saburo faced imminent death—and barely escaped. But how long would he manage to survive?"

Easily one of the most dramatic conversion stories you’ll ever read, Rainbow Over Hell lets you see the horrors of World War II through the eyes of a Japanese youth who joined the resistance against the Americans and became an assassin. Saburo’s eventual arrest and death sentence formed the backdrop for a life-altering encounter with another condemned Man who died long ago to secure his freedom.
