"Ullman today would be largely forgotten but for an accident: in his retirement he wrote poetry. Some of this verse was printed in a book in 1922 and one of these poems was somehow seen by Douglas MacArthur, who hung a framed copy on the wall of his office in Japan. This poem was 'Youth,' and it became enormously popular among the Japanese, who became curious about the author.... Almost nothing on the man existed, leading to frustration on all levels. With the publication of Armbrester's biography of Ullman, the situation is rectified. Her account... provides a highly readable and well-documented history of Ullman [and] reprints his verse, which is almost impossible to locate. The book provides the first account of a man who inadvertently changed many peoples' lives; it is enjoyably written, and it is nicely indexed." - Academic Library Book Review"
