Tokyo Rose

Tokyo Rose Iva Toguri D’ Aquino (1916-2006) was one of a group of English-speaking women who participated in a World War II Japanese radio propaganda program. These women were collectively referred to as “Tokyo Rose.” Iva Toguri, an American trapped in Japan when war broke out, served as a host named “Orphan Ann” for a Radio Tokyo program called the Zero Hour. After the war, two reporters portrayed her as the “Tokyo Rose,” and she was later tried and convicted of treason, in part based on their exaggerations. In 1977, she received a presidential pardon. This release details the investigation of D’ Aquino.
