THE DETECTIVE: Gwen Wright.
THE PLACE: Sun City West, Arizona.
THE CASE: History Detectives explores whether a 1940s recording may have helped convict the woman alleged to be “Tokyo Rose.” Many GI’s considered her a godsend … a familiar American voice keeping them company far from home. But, in a celebrated post-war trial, prosecutors portrayed her as an American devil, a siren who knowingly worked for the enemy, luring soldiers and sailors, then undermining their fighting spirit. In 1948, the woman who twice signed her name as the “one and original Tokyo Rose,” was brought back from Japan to face a grand jury. The war had ended, but her battle had just begun. History Detectives investigates whether this object can explain the story behind her “confession.”
