Harry was a typical American kid growing up in Washington state in the 1920s. He was brash and rebellious, sure of his own immortality, into sports and girls and doing the opposite of what his parents wanted him to do. Harry Fukuhara was also Japanese, and as he grew his two cultures - American and Japanese - were sometimes at odds, and then literally at war during World War II. Harry would be ripped from his life in Los Angeles and imprisoned in an internment camp by American authorities. He would be recruited as an intelligence analyst by the Army while he was interned. And he would fight for the Americans against the Japanese army, ever fearful that his three brothers would meet him on the opposite side of the battle field. A new book tells his story.
