Before Lee Harvey Oswald became linked to the JFK assassination, he was a mediocre U.S. Marine assigned to a radar squadron in Japan. Author Jack R. Swike, a former Marine Corps Intelligence Officer stationed in Japan, spent over two decades researching Oswald's activities overseas, resulting in The Missing Chapter: Lee Harvey Oswald in the Far East. This book will debunk some of the myths about Oswald's life during the Cold War era. For instance, few people know that Oswald's Marine squadron was stationed near a top secret atomic bomb facility on the Atsugi Naval Air Field in Japan, which also housed U-2 spy planes. Using the most reliable sources available, plus interviews with people who knew or had ties to Oswald, Swike has compiled a book of historical significance in unraveling a chapter of Oswald's life that had quite simply been overlooked.
