    Tom Brokav said it all in his best selling novel, 'The Greatest Generation'. The period between 1941-1945 will always be undoubtably known as the Victory era of World War II. And now some 57 years later, I have collectively with 14 other contributors to my book selected the most humerous, often outlandish, and fascinating collectibles from the World War II Homefront to share with you. Chapters include: Remember Pearl Harbor, V For Victory, Sweetheart Jewelry, Patriotics, Anti-Axis, Civilian Defense and Wartime Kids. This is the only book of it's kind and sure to be a keepsake for years to come.
