Home Front U.S.A: America during World War II

Synopsis

Since the first edition of this well-received title appeared, there has been an explosion of scholarly as well as popular interest in World War II and the home front. Informed by the latest historical literature and a deepened awareness of the accomplishments of the American civilian at home, this new edition has been thoughtfully revised, featuring a new prologue-taking up the question of "the good war" -- an epilogue and added material on the atomic bomb, women, African Americans, American Jews, Japanese Americans, and the many other groups that, though relegated to the fringe of mainstream society, contributed in important ways to the nation's successful prosecution of its greatest challenge. Includes 20 illustrations, bibliographical essay, and index.
