America on the Home Front

A journey across America during one of the most turbulent times in its history. Looking forward to a brighter future after the Great Depression, Americans saw many of our allies in Europe falling under Nazi domination. On Dec. 8, 1941, the day after Pearl Harbor, the U.S. declared war on Japan. Then Germany and Italy declared war on the U.S. and we were in the European war as well. The story of our nation's response is brought vividly to life with actual recordings of President Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, General MacArthur and many others. Interwoven with big band music, segments of popular radio programs and motion pictures that helped keep American spirits high, this 6 CD set recalls the great sacrifices and contributions of young and old on the American home front, and makes clear why Tom Brokaw used the words “The Greatest Generation” to describe those who grew up in the United States during the Great Depression and then went to fight in World War II. 6 dramatic and informative hours on 6 CDs
