Special focus is given to the multiple cultures of America during WWII and their contributions to the production of the arsenal of democracy. Author Takaki makes a convincing case for the war as a giant leap forward in the civil rights of groups such as Native Americans, Japanese, Jews, Mexicans, blacks, and women. Edward Lewis's unusual style of reading spits sentences out like ultra-fast bullets, pausing longer between sentences than most other readers, and requiring extra concentration to understand. The total effect is positive, however, and history fans will find this presentation a refreshing viewpoint to the most important event of the last century.
