Fine piece of work, to which I offer a small factual historical correction:
When Straus writes that Sherwood F Moran (who joined the Marines in his late 50s during a Japan missionary career and
landed on Guadalcanal to do PoW interrogation, then wrote famously about how to do that effectively) had grown up in Japan, he errs, and has confused SF Moran with his son SR Moran (who did grow up there and during the war served in the US Navy as a codebreaker).
