Honor by Fire
Japanese Americans at War in Europe and the PacificBook - 1994
After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Japanese Americans faced prejudice and violence from a suspicious America. Yet even with their families incarcerated in internment camps, many Japanese American men fought for the right to join the US military. WWII war correspondent Lyn Crost offers an admiring history of Japanese Americans' contribution, chronicling their military service, the horrendous casualties they suffered, and the reputation they finally earned from many high- ranking officers as "America's secret weapon."
