Summary "It was the last of the 'good wars.' Roosevelt was president, Hitler was the enemy, the Depression was over, and Americans were united with a common goal on which to focus their attention, their energies, and their hate. The World War II years were a special time in our history and we have never been quite the same since. In the decades since the war, nostalgia has inevitably seeped in to replace the facts of history. based on interviews across the nation with hundreds of men and women of all ages and all walks of life, The Home Front recalls an unvarnished vision of the war as it was experienced on American soil."--Book Jacket.
