It is here! Today is release day.

Pearl Harbor and More - Stories of WWII: December 1941.

About I am an American by Robyn Hobusch Echols:

The Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and the next day the President of the United States delivers an impassioned speech asking for a declaration of war on Japan and Germany. For the families of two Livingston, California, USA high school seniors, Ellen Okita, a first generation American who lives in the Yamato Colony composed of about 100 families of Japanese descent, and Flo Kaufmann, whose father is a first generation American in his family, the war hits home fast and brings unforeseen changes.

Here is the forward to this anthology of stories written by authors worldwide about the events that took place in December 1941:

On December 7th 1941, a pivotal event took place that changed the face of World War 2. Hundreds of Japanese fighter planes carried out a devastating surprise attack on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. By December 11th, the United States was at war with the Axis Powers in the Pacific and European theaters. World War 2 raged for almost another four years, but the entry of the world’s greatest economy into the conflict profoundly influenced its course.

This wide-ranging collection of eight stories by a diverse group of authors, who write wartime fiction, commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Pearl Harbor. Few people’s lives were unaffected in some way by that fateful day and these stories reflect this. Some of them are set at Pearl Harbor itself, on the Pacific Islands or in other parts of the United States. Other stories take place in occupied France, Germany and Northern Ireland. They explore the experiences of U.S. servicemen and women, a German Jew, Japanese Americans, a French countess, an Ulster Home Guard, and many others.

We hope readers will enjoy our salute to the people and the events of this momentous era.
