From the Publisher:
Arguing that many Americans fought in World War II for a "double victory"--one against fascism abroad, the other against racism at home--the author captures the voices of people who are often overlooked in traditional narratives of the conflict.From a Navajo code talker to a Tuskegee pilot, Takaki examines the many contributions and sacrifices of America's minorities--blacks, Chinese, Native Americans and others--during World War II. Photos.
Annotation:
This multicultural perspective on World War II tells how American soldiers and citizens played a significant role in the war effort but also how they were affected both by the fervor of ideology and by the reality of their everyday lives--and sometimes by the contrast between the two. Professor Takaki also examines decision-making at the top, in which multicultural issues can be perceived.
