World War II: From Homefront to Frontline

World War II changed the lives of Americans serving overseas, but it also impacted those remaining home. This talk will illustrate the war’s influence on home front culture, connect concurrent events abroad, and explore limited modes of communication available in the 1940s to unite these two worlds. Listen to Glenn Miller’s “special sound,” admire war effort fashion, save your ration stamps, and join our servicemen and women in the European, Pacific, and African theaters.
