Abstract:

Examines the causes and effects of the worst economic crisis in U.S. history - The Great Depression. See how Americans of all walks of life coped, while half a world away an unimaginable horror that would threaten America, and the world, was beginning to take hold in Germany.

Stormy weather : America--a nation that claimed ever-increasing wealth as its birthright--was rudely awakened by the Great Depression, which caused 25% unemployment, the closing of 9,000 banks, and the loss of $2.5 billion in deposits. This program captures a people's struggle as they faced the collapse of prosperity and diminished hopes of being able to experience the American Dream.

Over the edge : Safely watching Europe from across the Atlantic Ocean, many Americans observed the messianic popularity of Hitler and Mussolini and the subsequent outbreak of World War II with dismay. This program explores the six years preceding America's involvement in the war and explores the question: Could the U.S. have resisted involvement and why did American forces fight in another European war?
