Although he spoke little Japanese, Uno moved to Japan in 1937 and wrote pro-Japanese articles from the Chinese front for publication in the pro-Tokyo Far Eastern Review and other Nisei publications. Between tours in China, Uno returned to the US and made numerous speeches in Japanese communities throughout the west, often with the support of the Japanese American Citizens League. He also engaged in confrontational debates about war with Chinese-Americans. He lost his American citizenship after joining the Japanese Army in 1941. Following the publication this book, Uno was instrumental in broadcasting a propaganda radio program, "The Zero Hour," to US forces in the Pacific that featured Iva Toguri D'Aquino, better known after the war as Tokyo Rose. Uno had three loyal brothers who served in the US Army; each publically requested the opportunity to execute their bother should that become possible.
