Great, new 208 page volume with over 600 black and white and more than 60 full color photos. Covers homefront items ranging from: arcade pin-up postcards, greeting cards, matchbooks and POW, to stationery, comics, gum cards and toys. Numerous paper items are shown. Each major chapter includes an interesting and informative introduction to the topic. Values are provided. An outstanding compilation of a variety of collectibles, providing insight into life in the U.S. during WWII that will be of interest to people of all ages.
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.
