More About This Title On the Home Front


With stories of heroism and sacrifice, this nostalgic look back gives credit to those working and living in the United States during World War II. Hear how war bond drives and USO shows boosted U.S. patriotism to unite under a common cause, love was put on hold or sweethearts hurriedly “tied the knot” before orders came through, and women across the nation took the “We can do it!” motto seriously as they kept assembly lines running smoothly for the war effort. This special collection recounts the days of romance, rationing, and Rosie the Riveter by those who experienced them—from the early, dark days of Pearl Harbor to the exhilaration of victory when families were reunited.
