Wartime America : The World War II Home Front, Paperback / softback Book

Wartime America : The World War II Home Front Paperback / softback

Part of the American Ways series

Description

Designed to give students a concise compass to probe the history of World War II America and to assess the war's impact on American life, the new edition of Wartime America retains the framework of the original edition but adds new important focus on topics such as other home fronts, the lives of veterans, expanded coverage of World War II as the Good War, and the concept of "the Greatest Generation."Jeffries paints a picture of a people emerging from the Great Depression and eager for a better life, yet often reluctant to abandon the touchstones of their past.

Combining both an original interpretation and synthesis of recent scholarship, Wartime America offers students a concise exploration of the war's transformative role in American life.
