Darby Perry has recently been appointed publisher of AMERICAN HERITAGE . For this article he interviewed or corresponded with several Panay survivors and with Japanese pilots who participated in the attack. He is now at work on a book about the incident. The editors wish to thank Arthur F. Anders, the Panay’s executive officer, for permission to photograph the blood-stained chart on which he wrote his orders (see page 41). Mr. Anders, now a retired commander living in California, has a son, Air Force Major William A. Anders, in the astronaut program. It is only one generation from gunboat times to the space age.
