1573062812 No marks or damage from past owners, not a former library book, not a remainder or book club, no jacket, Glossy illustrated Hardcover. This book tells the story of Life in Hawai'i during World War II. Hawai'i was both a home front and a war zone, the only American territory to have that distinction. Almost 40% of the Islands' permanent population was of Japanese heritage-some 140,000 people-and were classified as "enemy aliens" by the federal government, despite the majority of them being American citizens. A few men who believed in their loyalty defied the feds and kept them from. internment camps of the mainland. Well over a million men and women-both service members and war workers-passed through these Islands during the war. The book is profusely illustrated and many of the images have rarely, if ever, been previously published. All books shipped within 24 hours with U.S. Postal Service Delivery Confirmation, each order is packaged in a new box with bubble wrap, and always your satisfaction is guaranteed.
