History Detectives

Tokyo Rose

Clip: Season 7 Episode 5 | 17m 20s

History Detectives explores whether a 1940s recording may have helped convict the woman alleged to be "Tokyo Rose". In 1948, the woman who twice signed her name the "one and original Tokyo Rose," was brought back from Japan to face a grand jury. The war had ended, but her battle had just begun. History Detectives investigates whether this object can explain the story behind her "confession?"
