By Tim McLaughlin BOSTON (Reuters) - A forgotten and unlikely American hero has been resurrected by author Lou Ureneck in a new book about the ethnic cleansing of Smyrna, a cosmopolitan gem in the Ottoman Empire burnt to the ground in 1922. "The Great Fire", released this month by HarperCollins, details how a sickly YMCA worker named Asa Jennings spirited about 250,000 people from certain death by the Turkish national army. Led by Mustapha Kemal, the army targeted Greeks, Armenians and other ethnic groups in what Ureneck calls the final act in a 10-year genocide of Christians.
