Editorial Reviews

Carolyn Phelan
Written for kids who have never heard of Rosie the Riveter or ration stamps, this introduction to the American home front during World War II will provide entertaining glimpses of daily life as well as an informative analysis of events. The inclusion of issues such as the relocation of Japanese Americans, the rise of juvenile delinquency, and riots arising from racial injustice balances the "good old days" reminiscences of idealism and community fostered by Americans' common sense of purpose. The many black-and-white photographs of everyday people in factories, on farms, in the streets, and in homes clarify details of the period. An excellent addition to library collections, this will be useful for assignments on the war or the 1940s.
