David BergaminiDavid Howland Bergamini (11 October 1928 – 3 September 1983, in Tokyo) was an American author who wrote books on 20th-century history and popular science, notably mathematics. Bergamini was interned as an Allied civilian in a Japanese concentration camp in the Philippines with his mother, father (John Van Wie Bergamini, an architect who worked for the American Episcopal Mission in China, Japan, the Philippines and Africa,) and younger sister for the duration of World War II.
According to Professor Charles Sheldon of the University of Cambridge, his 1971 book on ''Japan's Imperial Conspiracy'' "is a polemic which, to our knowledge, contradicts all previous scholarly work.... Specialists on Japan have unanimously demolished Bergamini's thesis and his pretensions to careful scholarship. Provided by Wikipedia
