Inhaltsangabe: Wars obviously have an enormous impact on those who fight them. What about war's effect on the people back home? How does war change and define their lives, and how does this affected populace, in turn, shape American society? Through the copious use of primary sources, Letters from the Homefront offers first-hand, sometimes poignant insight into the impact of war on America's civilian population. Letters and diaries as well as an array of other documents from the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combine with key background information to take the reader through the course of each war, from inception to aftermath. What emerges is a fascinating snapshot of life on the American homefront.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-Each book opens with an introduction about the origins of the conflict. Chapters are devoted to the public's initial reactions to the war, its effects on blacks and on women, and to the societal divisions that grew as the fighting continued. A short conclusion discusses its legacy. Numerous excerpts from letters and other documents are woven into the narratives or are used as illustrative material. Coverage is objective, especially for the Vietnam War. The volumes are illustrated with black-and-white and color photos and period art. While both books purportedly cover the wartime home fronts, Civil War is more focused; however, Duane Damon's When This Cruel War Is Over: The Civil War Home Front (Lerner, 1996) is slightly more readable. Vietnam reads like a general history of the 1960s, with chapters on the civil rights and women's movements that barely mention the war. Most titles on the Vietnam War provide as much coverage of the war at home, especially the protest movements, as does this one. Optional purchases based on demand.
