Abstract:

Focusing on the citizens of four towns--Luverne, Minnesota; Sacramento, California; Waterbury Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama--The war follows more than forty people from 1941 to 1945. Woven largely from their memories, the compelling, unflinching narrative unfolds month by bloody month, with the outcome always in doubt. The iconic events are here, but we also move among prisoners of war, defense workers and schoolchildren, and families who struggled simply to stay together--Container.
