About the Author

With the California Center for Military History, San Francisco historian John Garvey, author of Arcadia Publishing's San Francisco Fire Department, uses vintage photographs to tell the amazing story of San Francisco in World War II, when shipyards set records for wartime production, tens of thousands of soldiers crowded the streets, and citizens wondered where it would all lead. Incorporating stories from veterans, this volume runs from tense beginnings to the joyous street celebrations after the Japanese surrender, relating a dramatic and unique tale in San Francisco history.
