Japanese Eyes American Heart, Volume 2 Voices from the Home Front in World War II Hawaii Product Description:

Stories from the Home Front in World War II Hawaii…


Gathered here for the first time are dozens of deeply personal stories, many of them written by the subjects themselves, that reveal the hardship, sorrow and anguish – as well as the pride, compassion and even laughter – experienced by Japanese Americans living in Hawaii following the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. These stories of quiet strength and enduring resiliency give rare insight into the seeds of change that transformed postwar Hawaii and define the legacy that this wartime generation passed down to those of us who follow.


As the second volume of Japanese Eyes, American Heart, this book complements the personal memoirs presented in the first book by Nisei soldiers, who served with gallantry and distinction on the war front for our nation. Together, they offer insights into a generation’s moment in history that challenged our country to live up to its democratic ideals and created new opportunities for the Japanese in Hawaii.
