"The Last Year Of The War" By Susan Meissner

Book Cover - The Last Year of the War

While the mass internment of Japanese Americans during WWII is well documented, few know about the other immigrant groups who suffered similar fates. More than eleven thousand American citizens and legal residents of German descent were also held during World War II along with Japanese and Italian-Americans thought to be potentially sympathetic to the country’s enemies.

Susan Meissner’s new historical novel "The Last Year Of The War," shines light on the U.S. government’s little-known repatriation program during WWII and resonates with timely questions about what it means to be an American.
