schema:description"While young men and women were overseas fighting the battles of World War II, those left behind in the states filled the home front with humor and longing, style and song. Home Front America is a nostalgic, visual look at the cultural ephemera of that era, with all of its brash propaganda and sweet sentimentality. Authors Robert Heide and John Gilman have collected an astounding array of items which vividly recall American life during those chaotic times. Through a substantial, entertaining text and colorful photographs of pinback buttons, war posters, fashions, household products, ads, and much more, these two war-baby authors have evoked a time of excitement, strength, sacrifice, and hope. The book also explores a multitude of home front activities, from U.S.O. canteens to war bond rallies, home front decor to housewives' wartime menus, Victory Gardens to rationing, and radio programming to Hollywood films."@en
