Japan at War
America's conflict with Japan in World War II is often distilled into two events: Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima. This remarkable oral history gives us a detailed picture of a society that experienced the war in all its enormity. The stories include those of children who built bombs without knowing it, starving mothers who sent rice to their sons on the front, journalists imprisoned for reporting the war truthfully. Together, they form an incredible account of a nation's people torn asunder by a war of their own making, told in their own words.
