Overview


Cincinnati: The World War II Years explores a significant chapter in the history of greater Cincinnati: the time before, during, and immediately after World War II. The book, spanning from 1937 to 1955, examines trends in the social, political, and cultural history of the city and surrounding communities. Events transpiring in Cincinnati mirrored changes that the United States experienced during this pivotal period—the Great Depression, isolationist impulses, the mobilization for war, and the postwar economic boom. Because Cincinnati’s war years so closely reflect larger national trends of the time, the story of this city’s home front experience serves as an insightful case study of the national war experience.
