We Pulled Together-- And Won!

We Pulled Together-- And Won! by Deb Mulvey

A collection of reminiscences about World War II in America -- and to Americans aboard. On the lighter side -- insofar as that is possible, one of the stories being an account of a family huddled behind a mattress to protect themselves from stray shots and shrapnel at Pearl Harbor. Home front, war work, deployed aboard whether military or not. A lot of personal detail.
