Sintesi dell'editore

[Contains explicit content] The war is over, but the euphoria over America’s victory quickly gave way to an intense desire for normalcy, even as 15 million veterans started to return home. From shortages in consumer goods and housing to loved ones lost, host Martin Sheen explores how Americans learned to live in peacetime once again.

We won! ...now what?

In this episode: how to cope with the aftermath? Whole industries and factories shut down immediately. Women and minorities are kicked out of the work force that needed them yesterday. Unrest rises as society tries to roll back the new social mores. Soldiers come home ... different. They're wrecked with survivor's guilt, unemployment, PTSD (just not called that yet).

Also, the war industries have created vast consumer shortages. When they finally catch up, we get the prosperous Americana 1950s. And the all too common broken homeless soldier.

great personal perspective of the US homefront

First, Martin Sheen voice is made for audio performance. Second, as a history buff, I very much enjoyed what I felt was an honest personal perspective of the US home front during WWII. I have seen many of these viewpoints alluded to, but have never encountered audio segments of daily life changes brought on by the last world war. I found myself intrigued by each episode and looking for even more information.
