Summary "In In Love and War, readers are eyewitness to the courtship of Naoko Tsukiyama and Yoshiharu Ogata, two young Nisei (second-generation Japanese) whose courtship is riddled with challenges: they live on different islands, he on Oahu and she is in Hilo (the Big Island), the bombing of Pearl Harbor, martial law established during the war on the Islands, and the possibility of Yoshi being drafted into the military. The letters begin in July 1941 and end in June 1943. This correspondence presents a glimpse of life under martial law and addresses patriotism from a segment of the population considered possible saboteurs and spies. In compiling, transcribing, and editing these letters, Miyamoto fleshes out what it meant to live and work on the islands of Kaua'i, O'ahu, and Hawai'i during the war years"--Provided by publisher
