Escape from Manchuria: Japan Civilians and the Soviet Union at the End of World War II

When: Tue., Sept. 15, 7-8 p.m. 2015

You can live here for decades and still stumble upon amazing organizations you never knew existed. Such a one is the Rocky Mountain Military Affairs Society, which offers up a deep assortment of free presentations on geopolitics and military history with un-boring titles like "Children of the Atom Splitters" and "In the Wadi, the Blood Flowed Like Rain." Consider Paul Maruyama's "Escape from Manchuria," which begins at 7 tonight at Library 21c (1175 Chapel Hills Drive, rmmas.org/Events.html): He'll spin the tale of his father and two friends, who engineered the repatriation of almost 2 million Japanese civilians trapped in Manchuria by Soviet occupiers in the 1940s. Excellent stuff. — Mary Jo Meade
