Description

December 7, 1941 brought about a cataclysmic change to America. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor catapulted the country into a global war that every one expected, but still caught most people by complete surprise. Within a matter of months, the country was transformed into the greatest arsenal of war the world has ever seen. Over 16 million men and women served in uniform while nearly four times that number became citizen volunteers on the home front.

"Don't You Know There's A War On?" is a trip down memory lane during those challenging years when an entire nation went to war. Every man, woman, and child was called into service, and few, if any, refused the call.

This book is not just about volunteers and sacrifice. It also tells the story of one of the nation's best kept secrets in the Navy's incredible "V-5" program, the story of an airplane called "Stubborn Hellion," the Japanese "balloon bombs," and the bombing of Oregon by an ingenious Japanese plan that almost worked.

"Don't You Know There's A War On?" is a delightful read about those momentous days during World War II when America was forever changed by what many historians describe as the defining event of the 20th century.

 Due to a Spambomb attack, our contact form is having issues!  

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
