Danny Placides grew up in a close-knit, South Philadelphia neighborhood in the shadow of World War II. After the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the face of his world changed-his father was called back into active duty with the navy, young men he so admired went off to war and some never returned, homemakers manned the plants and factories, neighbors grew victory gardens, and even the children supported the war effort by earning money to buy bonds. Experience a child's perspective of life on the home front, which included everything from the ordinary to the exceptional, from playing half-ball with street buddies to learning diffi cult life lessons to Saturday afternoon matinees at the Breeze Movie Theater to Italian POW visits to stories of combat, survival, sacrifice, and victory by those who lived it.
