Iva Toguri, who became known as "Tokyo Rose" was a Japanese American who was in Japan at the outbreak of World War II, caring for a sick relative. She was unable to return home to the United States and was coerced by Japanese officials to work as an announcer on state-controlled radio broadcasts. On these broadcasts, directed to U.S. servicemen by the Japanese government, Toguri and other women predicted an imminent Japanese victory and attempted to dissuade Allied troops from fighting. After the war, Toguri was the only woman arrested and held for treason for her part in the broadcasts. She later served several years in prison.
