American Mishima is the work of author Louis Edward Rosas, the son of Mexican Immigrants whose father Luis served in the U.S. Army in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. In his youth, he grew up on glamorized war films and military aviation in the sleepy seaside plains of Oxnard California. It was there he watched waves of replica Japanese Warplanes fly overhead as they filmed various WWII dramas including The Black Sheep Squadron out of the nearby Oxnard Airport. Instilled with an early fascination of the Second World War during the Post Vietnam Era, it was his exposure to Akira Kurosawa's Samurai epic Ran (Toho, 1985) that changed his views on war while creating a lasting impression of Japanese culture and history.

“Life is like swordplay. Grip it, hold it tightly, then make your move.”
Louis Edward Rosas, The Soldier and the Samurai

“Honor knows no birthright.”
Louis Edward Rosas, Hatamoto

“There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities, it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope, the death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender. The future is all around us, waiting in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation. No one knows the shape of that future, or where it will take us. We know only that it is always born in pain.”
