From the Publisher"Using both primary and secondary sources, the author shows how daily life and contemporary attitudes differed dramatically depending on one's gender, locale, or race . . . Readers will find Marten's overarching theme of change—both immediate and long-range—revelatory and instructional . . . A useful book that combines competent research with the distinct advantage of having a variety of homefront experiences and attitudes presented in a single volume."
School Library Journal

Offering a rare glimpse of the impact of the war on children, it provides a useful overview . . . Recommended for larger public and academic libraries."
