  • V for Victory: America's Home Front During World War II

    The author does not pretend that this is the definitive chronicle of World War II. Yet this remarkable compilation of photographs and memorabilia will bring back vivid memories of the era for those who lived through it, and--better yet--make it intensely real for those who did not experience it firsthand. Stan Cohen clearly remembers it all: victory gardens; scrap drives; air raid drills; women welders and drill press workers; children in gas masks; Fiorello La Guardia and the Civilian Defense Corps.

  • Home Front: North Carolina during World War II

    At the outset of World War II, North Carolina was one of the poorest states in the Union. More than half of the land was rural. Over one-third of the farms had no electricity; only one in eight had a telephone. Illiteracy and a lack of education resulted in the highest rate of draft rejections of any state. The citizens desperately wanted higher living standards, and the war would soon awaken the Rip Van Winkle state to its fullest potential. Home Front traces the evolution of the people, customs, traditions, and attitudes, arguing that World W...

  • Bad Girls: Young Women, Sex, and Rebellion before the Sixties (Gender and American Culture)

    In this innovative and revealing study of midcentury American sex and culture, Amanda Littauer traces the origins of the "sexual revolution" of the 1960s. She argues that sexual liberation was much more than a reaction to 1950s repression because it largely involved the mainstreaming of a counterculture already on the rise among girls and young women decades earlier. From World War II–era "victory girls" to teen lesbians in the 1940s and 1950s, these nonconforming women and girls navigated and resisted intense social and interpersonal pressur...

A few months later he was back home in Phoenix when the telegram arrived notifying him that he was to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Herrera was ju...

  • Committed to Victory: The Kentucky Home Front During World War II (Topics In Kentucky History)

    When World War II broke out in Europe in September 1939, Kentucky was still plagued by the Great Depression.
