9780915013128: Hawaii Goes to War: Life in Hawaii from Pearl Harbor to Peace

Here is the enthralling story of Hawaii during World War II, as shown through a fascinating text and hundreds of rare and historic photographs. World War II's disruptions were felt throughout the United States, but nowhere more strongly than in Hawaii. Beginning with the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941, the years of change and the restrictions that in 1945 caused the islands to undergo an experience unlike anywhere else in the country.Everyone had to live with mail censorship and special U.S. currency under a fully entrenched military government. Residents of all ages toted gas masks, huddled in backyard air raid shelters, and spent nights under curfew in blacked out homes. The flood of military personnel and mainland war workers lived in tent cities and sought fun and companionship on Honolulu's notorious Hotel Street.
