Review, "The Patriots: A historian follows one Japanese-American family from Depression-era Seattle to the internment camps, to Hiroshima," Amherst Magazine

"That Sakamoto is able to tell such a long and multifaceted story with readable omnipresence is a remarkable achievement, and is clearly the product of many years of research and interviews. But more than just an engrossing tale of a family riven by war, this book is a valuable document that captures the lived experience of a group of Americans, patriotic despite the treatment they received from their government, who deserve as thorough a chronicle as our historians can offer."
