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.

Meowy Christmas!

Christmas 2024!

Yup, it's Christmas 2024!

See you again on January 3rd! Admin is closed until then!

Seriously--we "mostly" close from December 24th-ish until the middle of the week, first week of January. Production is still steaming along, but admin takes a desperately-needed break for ~10 days. We'll answer any emails that seem in dire straights, but generally speaking, we're mostly gone for that period of time.  See ya when we return!--Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
