A diverse cross-section of Americans participated in waging the Pacific War, on the battlefield and on the home front. Yet too many stories are still underrepresented. "Perspectives on World War II in the Pacific Theater" examines this war experience through multiple and diverse narratives and perspectives, offering teachers a chance to develop a classroom practice which explores a full, layered, and accurate history in a way which challenges and engages their students.
