The Homefront: America During World War II
1984   The Homefront

Written with Franklin Mitchell and Steven Schechter, introduction by Studs Terkel.

Among the major powers of World War II, only the United States was spared the massive destruction of lives and property on its homefront. Yet the nation and the American people were profoundly changed by the war. The Homefront vividly chronicles that turbulent period through evocative photographs and remarkable interviews with ordinary Americans whose lives were dramatically affected by the war. The book was written in conjuction with the making of the PBS documentary, The Homefront.
