In 1938, the year before the world exploded into six years of war, eight people boarded a Caribbean freighter for a cruise to the Republic of Anchuria. They were beginning to see signs of a recovery from the Great Depression and gave little thought to the dark storms approaching them from Europe. Most of them were unaware of the Anchurian President’s attempts to establish an alliance with Hitler’s Third Reich. Most of them were unaware of those among their travel companions who promoted the Nazi cause. Most of them were unaware of those among their travel companions who fought against it. Most of them were unaware of the intrigue and murder and the plans of violence surrounding them. The ones who were unaware enjoyed their experience.
