WWII Stories From Japanese Americans Captured in New Book - NBC News.com

My article for NBC Asian America
This is not a book about life in the camps. Rather, this is a book about the Constitution, freedom, and the triumph of Japanese Americans as a community during a time of racial prejudice and wartime hysteria. It is semi-autobiographical, and tells Mori's personal stories as well as those told to him—from the young Nisei men who tried to enlist and found that they had been reclassified as "enemy aliens ineligible for service," to those who sought redress after the war to make sure this would never happen to anyone else again.
