FIGHTING FOR THE DREAM
Voices of Chinese American Veterans from World War II to Afghanistan
A book-length oral history of 40 Chinese American men and women—ages 24 to 94—who served in wars from World War II to conflicts in Afghanistan. These individuals defied boundaries, went against their cultural grain, and changed history. Through their personal stories, we see a greater tapestry that is the story of America itself in the last hundred years. We see how Chinese American communities were formed, and have been changed, by U.S. wars.
