New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1968. Second Printing. Hardcover. [10], 246 pages. Occasional footnotes. DH has some wear, soiling, and sticker residue on front. Hanoch Helfgott (Bartov) was born in Petah Tikva in 1926, a year after his parents immigrated from Poland. He attended a religious school and then the Ahad Haam gymnasium. After working in diamond polishing and welding for two years, he enlisted in 1943, at the age of 17, in the Palestine Regiment of the British Army. He spent three years in the Jewish Brigade, first in Palestine and then in Italy and the Netherlands, where he served as a medic, caring for Holocaust survivors in DP camps. After World War II, Bartov studied Jewish and general history at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. During the War of Independence he served in field army units and the Israel Defense Forces in Jerusalem. He lived for four years on Kibbutz Ein Hahoresh, working as a farmhand and a teacher. From 1966 to 1968, Bartov served as a cultural advisor in the Israeli embassy in London. Bartov published his first story in 1945, when he was a 19-year-old soldier in Europe. In his writing, as a journalist and novelist, Bartov describes his first contacts with survivors of the Holocaust. The Brigade is a fictionalized account of the operation of the Jewish Brigade.

Tokyo, Fall of 1945 [Tokyo Senkyuhakuyonjugo-nen aki]. Bunka-sha.
Tokyo, Japan: Bunka-Sha, Inc. 1946. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. Unpaginated (approximately 70 pages). Format is approximately 10.25 inches by 7.25 inches. Black and White Illustrations. Cover has wear and soiling. Most of the text is in Japanese, but there is some English language narrative and photo captions. This is a photoessay on the immediate post-surrender situation in Tokyo and the initial recovery signs. During the war Kimura worked as photographic editor of magazine 'Front' which quickly renamed itself 'Company of Culture (Bunka-sha)' after the surrender. The present was it's first publication. The 'forward' is rich in metaphor: "The cause of the disease was deeper than expected and had laid hidden within the body for a long time. It was clear to anyone that this necessitated a big surgical operation. And then in the summer of 1945, a surgical operation of great proportion was effected in the presence of many witnesses... Tokyo today is still convalescent. She is still far from being called a metropolis, but has taken her first unsteady step after having undergone treatments such as continuous injections and blood tranfusions. The scars of her surgical operation is still fresh...". Black markets, GIs & Jeeps, queues, returning soldiers, cereals being grown at Nihonbashi, and scars everywhere... this is a superb document from beginning to end.
