Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One of the weakest collections of individual stories ever. Most chapters lacked context, and made little sense. And what's up with Nelson perry - why so much for him? This book has no analysis, and becomes a waste of time. The war needs a good left/progressive historical accounting, not this weird jumble.

This book was an interesting read in that it put one in the place of various people during the war: the Japanese Americans already established in America, the jews in Germany, the scientists working on the atomic bomb, the families left behind.

Format: Paperback
Nice reading. The conclusion was just very true. It is true that "...the ideologues on the left and on the right are interchangeable". Ill recommend the book to anyone who likes history. Its not very academic, but very real.
