World War II: On the Homefront

When World War II broke out, Roosevelt led the nation through a dramatic changeover to a wartime economy. Women found a new place in the workforce; Americans at home pulled together to economize through rationing of food, tires, gasoline, silk, and more; families grew their own produce in their victory gardens; and school children saved their pennies to invest in war bonds. This volume of life on the U. S. homefront tells the stories of the people, in their own words, who lived through those times: black Americans who faced increased prejudice, women who embarked on new careers, and Japanese-Americans in internment camps.
