The tragic events of September 11, 2001 brought to the surface memories of an earlier time of unprecedented national emergency — Pearl Harbor — and America’s subsequent involvement in World War II. In this evocative cultural history, Richard Lingeman re-creates the events — historic, humorous, and tragic — and personalities of the American home front. From V-girls and V-mail, blackouts and the internment of the Japanese, to new opportunities for African-Americans and women, Lingeman recaptures a unique time in American history in this New York Times Notable Book.
