Abstract:

Chronicles America's ascension out of the Depression as it enters its second world war of the century. Victorious over the German and Japanese armies, America finds itself organizing the reconstruction of Europe under the ambitious Marshall Plan.

Civilians at war: World War II was the first war in history that killed more civilians than soldiers, as leaders on both sides accepted noncombatant casualties as inevitable--and to some, even desirable. This program studies the courage and strength necessary to face and survive starvation, bombing, torpedoing, massacre, and extermination in camps specifically designed for that purpose.

Homefront: The shock of Pearl Harbor awoke America from its dream of isolationism. As troops went overseas and industry ramped up to supply the urgent need for war materials, a new wave of Southern blacks migrated north and west to fill the workforce--along with millions of women. This program discusses the effects of World War II on the homefront, spotlighting the war's impact as a catalyst for economic, demographic and social change.

Best years: Demobilization after World War II meant difficult changes as the U.S., geared up for war, resumed a peacetime existence. This program describes America's new status as a superpower, as the nation shouldered the responsibility for rebuilding Europe and Japan--and for containing Soviet ambitions. The challenge faced by veterans and spouses to become reacquainted after years of separation and hardship is highlighted.
