5097. Don't You Know There's A War On? The American Home Front, 1941-1945, by Richard R. Lingeman (read 7 Dec 2013) This excellent book tells of the years of World War II in the United States, and for those of us who lived through the war is filled with nostalgic rememberings, as it tells of war work, scrap drives, rationing, war movies, war songs, etc. I found some chapters very moving, especially those relating to the last months of the war and to FDR's death. There is also humor as he relates some of the excesses of early war preparation, in such places as Kansas and Wyoming. The idiocy of the Japanese internments is told well. I reflected how the war was easier living on an Iowa farm, where we had little difficulty as to rationing--we raised our own vegetables and fruit and meat--the main rationing concern was as to sugar. This has been a sheerly enjoyable book, which I should have read long ago. ( )

Nostalgic look at the American home front from Pearl Harbor to 1945. Covers the industrial mobilization for war, rationing and shortages, war nerves, the changing demographics, the propaganda campaign, wartime books, movies, radio, and baseball.

I especially enjoyed the responses of cartoon characters to the war. Joe Palooka and Skeezix joined the army and Barney Google the navy, but Prince Valiant ignored the war, for obvious reasons. And Superman, for reasons not quite so obvious. Dick Tracy did naval intelligence, Mickey Finn joined the coast guard, and Smilin’ Jack the air force. Little Orphan Annie helped on the home front, as did Aunt Fritzi Ritz. And, as any old timer knows, Sad Sack joined the army.

Indexed, with bibliography. ( )

This is the story of what a country looks and feels like when its people are collectively (in the main) supportive of a war that they view as justified. It stands in stark contradistinction to the misadventures that have taken place over the course of the past 40+ years. ( )
