"What may be particularly valuable to U.S. history teachers is the chronology of principal events printed as an introduction, citing specific Indian raids, military atrocities, and expedient laws that shaped activities on the home front during each of these periods."
"Along with concerns about the news from the front, those at home during the Great War had to worry about whether they were really American. Not all women wished to stop making good pay in smokestack industries after the Second World War, and some stayed to create what was to become the new normal in home life. Families were torn apart in the conflict at home during the Vietnam War and some never came together again. In this assessment of what went on behind the scenes when the guns went off, contributors describe fireside debate on conflicts ranging from the violent repression of Native Americans after the civil war to the Cold War to the more formalized aforesaid conflicts. They pay close attention to the role of women in war work, the impact of propaganda, and the means of educating children about the rightness of war."
