I thought Trosclair’s point about the difference between the psychology of this county as it now stands and what it was like in the early 40s is not only interesting, but also provocative. He describes how most people were willing to make sacrifices for the greater good at that time, and questions whether folks would be willing to do that now. He’s able to conjure up the feeling of that period, with both personal stories and statistics. He seems to feel that there is a fair chance that we’ll be faced with another global war, and uses the book to show what we would need to do to rise to the occasion again. I found it interesting to also read the book from the point of view of an environmentalist: we are already in that war, with global warming and other environmental problems, but are we willing to do what we need to do to win?Was this review helpful?
