John Steinbeck as propagandist the moon is down goes to war by Donald V Coers ( )
8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1,759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In early March 1942, a scant three months after Pearl Harbor, John Steinbeck published his play-novel The Moon Is Down, igniting in this country the most heated literary debate of the Second World War. He had intended to celebrate the "durability of democracy" with this fablelike tale, in which a small, peace-loving country, rather like Norway, is demoralized after being invaded by a powerful fascist state, rather like Nazi Germany, but recovers from the shock of defeat to form a promising resistance movement. - Introduction
