While citizens of Japanese heritage on the U.S. mainland were being incarcerated in detention camps, relatively few among Hawaii’s 40% Japanese population were detained, and many
volunteered for military service. Drafted before Pearl Harbor, Kazuo Yamane was singled out for intelligence work and made substantial contributions to the war effort at the Pentagon and in
Europe under Eisenhower. Preceded by THE ORANGE STORY (18 min.).
