December 1941 by Craig Shirley. The sub-title is, 31 days that changed America and saved the world. I'm curious about his period, because I was born during the middle of the Great Depression in 1935, and I was 6 years old when the war started. The US government put us Japanese Americans into concentration camps, and we were interred at Tule Lake in Northern CA for about three years. We lived in tar papered barracks with no paved roads, and you can imagine how we had to tread through mud during the winter months for meals and the toilets. In the late 1980's, the government sent us an apology and paid us $20,000 per person. No other country has ever apologized and paid reparations like the US. Even with this dark history, I'm glad to have been born in this country. Our grandfather escaped to Hawaii from Japan, because of the economic ruin of the country. The war years produced many movies about the war, and even one about the 442nd Infantry Battalion made up of Japanese Americans that was named, "Go For Broke." The biggest irony being, as we were couped up in concentration camps back home, the 442nd Infantry Battalion became the most decorated unit in US history. They fought in Europe, mostly in Italy, France and Germany. Many also served in the Pacific Theater as interpreters, translators, and spies for the allies. December 1941 should be interesting read for anyone interested in history for one month at the beginning of WWII.
