After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States Government encouraged all eligible young men to enlist immediately in the fight against its enemies overseas—all eligible young men, except Japanese-Americans. Nisei is the story of Hideo “Bobby” Takahashi, a Hawaiian-born Japanese-American who must overcome prejudice, internment, and the policies of his own government to prove his loyalty to his country. Narrated by Bobby Takahashi and read by his son, Robert, forty-six years after Bobby’s death, the story details the young Nisei’s determination to fight honorably for his country and return to the young love he was forced to leave—a girl he cannot have because she is White.

I would recommend this for lovers of history

Robert is in debt and decided to sale his mother's house and then he plans on ending it all. While searching the house one last time he comes across a box with a memoir from his father. This memoir shows the life his father lived as a boy and after during World War 2. He witnesses the attack on Pearl Harbor and shortly thereafter he and his family suffer imprisonment because they are Japanese-Americans. Through all the hate and judgement he still showed love for his country and played a big role in his war years. He was honored with many medals for bravery in war. He was an American, no matter what others said.

This book was very interesting. World War 2 and the attack on Pearl Harbor has always been a great interest of mine. This book gives a little different view of this time. A view that isn't seen often, a view from what many see as the enemy side. It told a horrible and sad tale of hate, while also telling a wonderful story full of bravery and hope. This story was written very well. It was real and sad. It had action and showed the world at a horrible time. It painted a not so great picture of what being different can really mean when the world around you is at war.

This book is a book that I will gladly recommend to any lovers of history. It was a really good read. Just a heads up....the ending is a big tear jerker. I cried like a baby. I really loved how this story ended....Stormi
