After Japan's devastating attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, America was at war. For the next four years, the war changed the lives of people everywhere. Sons and daughters were separated from parents; husbands from their wives. People who had never traveled more than a few miles outside their towns found themselves on battlefronts thousands of miles from home. While many history books have been written about the battles, politics, and personalities of World War II, few have provided a glimpse of the daily thoughts and concerns of America's fighting men and women--until w. POSTCARDS FROM WORLD WAR II offers an insightful look at the Second World War through historical narrative, postcard images, and personal messages. This beautiful full-color book presents nearly 100 actual postcards that were sent during the war, and that reflect a host of scenes, situations, and emotions. Beginning with 1941 and ending with VJ Day, the book takes you from the training camps of America to field hospitals in Europe and posts in the Pacific; from furloughs in New York City to sweethearts at home. Throughout the book, you'll also find fascinating insets that highlight various aspects of the war, including the role of the USO, censorship of letters, women at work, and so much more. POSTCARDS FROM WORLD WAR II helps recapture the triumphs and tragedies of this time. Each postcard is truly a part of our collective American history, a tangible memory of the heroism of the greatest generation.
