    schema:reviewBody ""This work traces the journeys of three World War II radio broadcasters in Germany and Japan whose wartime choices became treason in Britain, Australia, and the United States." "John Amery, a virulent anti-Semite, who was a member of a highly respected and well-connected British family, joined Hitler's propagandists in Berlin. He was executed for treason by Britain after the war. Charles Cousens, a popular radio personality at home in Australia, was a soldier in Japanese captivity. He was put to work on Radio Tokyo creating English language shortwave programs with a team of Allied prisoners of war. Cousens was later tried as a traitor in Australia. Iva Toguri, better known as "Tokyo Rose," was an American student visiting relatives in Japan when war broke out. She broadcast her English-language show on Radio Tokyo out of necessity rather than conviction. The United States jailed Toguri for treason." "The stories of these broadcasters mark some of the most famous treason trials in Britain, Australia, and the United States. The decisions of the three individuals - each of whom who made a choice between patriotism and survival - helped shape modern-day treason trials. This work sets Amery, Cousens, and Toguri in their family and social contexts to show the choices that were available to them and the ways in which they became part of the enemy's endless cycle of propaganda."--Jacket." ;
