Overview

The tragic events of September 11, 2001 brought to the surface memories of an earlier time of unprecedented national emergency—Pearl Harbor—and America's subsequent involvement in World War II. In this evocative cultural history, Richard Lingeman re-creates the events—historic, humorous, and tragic—and personalities of the American home front. From V-girls and V-mail, blackouts and the internment of the Japanese, to new opportunities for African-Americans and women, Lingeman recaptures a unique time in American history in this New York Times Notable Book.

This is the story of what a country looks and feels like when its people are collectively (in the main) supportive of a war that they view as justified. It stands in stark contradistinction to the misadventures that have taken place over the course of the past 40+ years.
