A multifaceted and timely work of nonfiction military and social history, THE SHADOW OF SACRIFICE: The True Story of a Pearl Harbor Survivor and his Nephew and Namesake redeems an outstanding "Debt of Honor." Seventy-five years ago, "Remember Pearl Harbor!" was the poignant and powerful slogan which rallied a badly shaken nation and galvanized the American people to win World War II. On December 7, 1941 twenty-seven year old Private First Class Joseph J. Deignan of Worcester Massachusetts (pronounced DEGGNAN) was strafed by low-flying Japanese war planes while he was serving as an Army Field Artilleryman at Schofield Barracks on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Little more than two months later, Deignan was dead. His mother believed that her youngest son, baptized as Donald, succumbed to wounds received as a result of the attack on Pearl Harbor and its military environs. After World War II Donald's oldest brother, Frank, a U.S. Army veteran of the Pacific Campaign, came home, married, and fathered a son. Frank named that boy "Donald" in memory of his lost, heroic youngest brother. Donald Joseph's "supreme sacrifice" has positively influenced the life and career of his nephew and namesake. In fact, the bequest of his uncle's name has proven to be both a talisman and a blessing to Don Deignan, the author of this book. Although the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is the pivotal event in THE SHADOW OF SACRIFICE, this work is not primarily about that occurrence. Rather, chance, choice and consequence are the themes which inextricably link two spiritually connected lives together over the span of much more than a century. From their impoverished family origins in pre-Famine Ireland down to the present day, Donald Joseph Deignan and his nephew, Don Deignan, have been bound together by ties of Faith, shared adversity, abiding love and mutual loyalty. Donald Joseph grew up in poverty and endured unemployment after which he met a sudden and violen
Living for the Sacrifice is the fascinating outline of engagement of one of the most intuitive and interesting men of our time; Brian Maurice Brown aka Peanut.

On March 18, 1942, barely one hundred days after Japan’s devastating “surprise attack” on the United States Navy’s Pacific Fleet based at Pearl Harbor, a group of American soldiers were guarding a beach on the north shore of the Hawaiian island of Oahu against an expected Japanese amphibious invasion. The atmosphere was tense. Suddenly, a gunshot shattered the almost perfect silence of that tropical night. In its aftermath, one young American soldier lay dead not far from the beach he was guarding. But who was he? And what were the circumstances which had led to his tragic death? The Shadow of Sacrifice answers these questions and, in the process, tells the compelling and poignant story of the way in which that single gunshot has echoed down through the generations of one typical American family. Here is a mystery, a tragedy, a kind of love-story, a tale of survival and transformation, and the unfolding record of promises made and kept. The young American soldier who died mysteriously on that Hawaiian beach in 1942 was my beloved uncle, Private First Class Donald Joseph John Deignan, for whom I was proudly named. Our lives have always been closely and positively connected. Here, just in time for the 75th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor Attack, is a thorough examination of the unbreakable and mutually beneficial bonds of love and loyalty which still unite us today. Veterans and their families, Baby-boomers, immigrants and people with disabilities will all find themselves reflected in our particular story.
