Angels of the Underground: Interview with Theresa Kaminski

Angels of the Underground

The Oxford University Press recently published Theresa Kaminski’s Angels of the Underground: The American Women who Resisted the Japanese in the Philippines in World War II. Kaminski’s book follows the lives of four American women who were stranded in the Philippines after Japan invaded during World War II. Publishers Weeklydescribed her book as a “fast-paced true story” that documents how these women resisted Japanese occupation. Kaminski’s other books have also examined the lives of women in the South Pacific during World War II. Her previous books include Prisoners in Paradise: American Women in the Wartime South Pacific and Citizen of Empire: Ethel Thomas Herold, an American in the Philippines. She also edited Dorothy Dore Dowle’s autobiography Enduring What Cannot be Endured: Memoir of a Medical Aide in the Philippines in the World War II.

Kaminski is currently a Professor of American Women’s History at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. You can also follow her on Twitter or Facebook. I would also recommend checking out her fantastic blog at www.theresakaminski.com.
