Peace is a Chain Reaction
How Japanese Balloon Bombs Connected Children of Two Nations

In Courage Has No Color, Tanya Lee Stone introduced readers to a little-known incident on U.S. soil that happened during World War II. The Japanese had discovered the jet stream and were using it to float balloons--armed with bombs--across the ocean, set to drop and detonate on the West Coast of America. There was much more to the story than could be told in the context of the story of the Triple Nickles in Courage Has No Color, and Stone now delves into that rich material with her forthcoming title: Peace is a Chain Reaction.
