This chapter examines the impact of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on American families. It explains that during this time fear became America's collective consciousness and altered the shape and tenor of people's lives and that the action of the Japanese coupled with the early success of German submarines made people think that America was vulnerable. The lives of Japanese Americans were the most affected as hatred toward the Japanese became intense and widespread.
