by Lee Dusa

This book is about fear of war. But it is also about love. And it is about patriotism. And it is about history. And it is about two people dedicated, in their own way, to doing the right thing no matter the costs. This is a story about our parents Vi and Martin Dusa.
Our mother, Vi Dusa, created the Diary. On December 7, 1941 she sat, along with her then boyfriend, Martin Dusa and family members, huddled around the Motorola radio, as President Theodore Roosevelt exclaimed in his thunderous voice "this day shall live in infamy". The President, along with the whole US population was shocked by the bold Japanese attack on the US base at Pearl Harbor that day. Martin and Vi looked at each other with fear, knowing that their lives would be changed from that point forward. In fact, they were right. Their lives, and the lives of all Americans would be changed. The lives of just about everyone on the planet would be changed. Millions would be killed over the next four years. All because a few deranged country leaders were crazily motivated with an ambition to rule the world.
