No Place for Innocence
by Bernice L. Hogan
An exciting tale of travel, intrigue, romance, and espionage unwinds as Bernice L. Hogan, the author, shares her adventures while working in Japan for the Air Force during the Korean War.
Hogan lived on an Air Force Base that housed the B-29 bombers and the crews who flew nightly bombing missions over North Korea. Over the two-year period she was there, the author worked as a secretary to four Brigadier Generals, each assigned to the base for a six-month tour of duty.
Through a bizarre set of circumstances, and without the author's knowledge, Hogan had been placed under investigation for espionage. The story takes the reader through intense workplace challenges, colorful friendships, and the urgency and glamour of a wartime romance.
