What People are Saying About This
A consciencewrenching book of major significance.
A truly excellent and moving book. The story of the concentration camps for Japanese has often been told, but usually with an emphasis on the silver lining. Michi Weglyn concentrates instead on the other side of the picture. Years of Infamy is hard hitting but fair and balanced. It is a terrible story of administrative callousness and bungling, untold damage to the human soul, confusion, and terror.
