Description

War reaches further than the battlefield. For those on the field, the war is full of bombs and terror. For those at home, the hardships are a difficult battle as well. This battle is fought not with guns and grenades but words and activism. The effects of the Great Depressing were far reaching and wasn't solved overnight. Find out the scope of these effects and what they meant to the later war efforts. Why was German and most of Europe in debt to a country that was younger than they were? Fear makes men do many things. At times, they cause us to do things that we would have never considered in the past. Find out what measures some leaders took to secure the home front any why they should never be repeated again. Learn about the Nazi parties lurking within our own boarders, looking for ways to help their German counterparts win the war. How did they get here? What damage did they cause? Find out more about the home front during World War II and how the landscape of America was changed forever. Comments From Other Readers "We give most of our focus on the war overseas, but there's little thought given it seems to those that kept the world running at home. Though the overseas war effort was staggering, this book's focus is on the behind-the-scenes endeavours that took place in the United States from 1940 to 1945. The book is laden with intricate details of the crucial, but often forgotten, war situations. It should serve as a reference book for the World War II buff and the novice alike." Davis - New England (USA) "This is a good look at the American Homefront in the early days of WWII. It captures the different moods of the county at the time. It really is a good book to get a good sense of how America was feeling at the onset of war. I'm glad I read this book, because it gives me insight into the lives that came before us, and the way they lived. We are so spoiled!"
