Jerry’s Last Mission

Jerry’s Last Mission
Jerry Yellin


The book captures the emotional turmoil of WW II enemy combatants whose lives change when their youngest children marry each other.

Jerry Yellin was a WW II P-51 fighter pilot who returned to the United States from the Battle of Iwo Jima and 19 missions over Japan with a loathing of the Japanese. Taro Yamakawa enlisted in the Japanese military hoping to fly fighter planes against the Americans and, if necessary, die for his country and Emperor.

Their distrust and animosity toward each other’s nation lingered until their world was turned upside down when Jerry’s youngest son moved to Japan and fell in love with Taro’s daughter.

A film based on the book was also released November 11, 2021 and is now being shown at film festivals throughout the US.
