an easily readable book about the Japanese-American experience in World War II, based mostly on interviews conducted by the author. There is a fair amount of valorizing in this book, but that's not exactly unexpected. I was disappointed that the book mentioned but didn't devote a chapter to the experiences of Japanese-American women who volunteered as nurses and translators after the Japanese surrender.
