Description: Between 1929 and 1945, two great travails were visited upon the American people: the Great Depression and World War II. The American People in World War II: Freedom From Fear, Part Two tells the story of how Americans endured, and eventually prevailed, in the face of the unprecedented calamaties of World War II. David Kennedy will add a new introduction to this Pulitzer Prize-winning title. It is the definitive history of one of the most challenging periodsin American history since the Civil War. David Kennedy's history is a portrait of a resilient people weathering economic havoc and surviving.
Synopsis: Even as the New Deal was coping with the Depression, a new menace was developing abroad. Exploiting Germany's own economic burdens, Hitler reached out to the disaffected, turning their aimless discontent into loyal support for his Nazi Party. In Asia, Japan harbored imperial ambitions of its own. The same generation of Americans who battled the Depression eventually had to shoulder arms in another conflict that wreaked worldwide destruction, ushered in the nuclear age, and forever changed their way of life and their country's relationship to the rest of the world. The American People in World War II-the second installment of Kennedy's Pulitzer Prize-winning Freedom from Fear-explains how the nation agonized over its role in the conflict, how it fought the war, why the United States emerged victorious, and why the consequences of victory were sometimes sweet, sometimes ironic. In a compelling narrative, Kennedy analyzes the determinants of American strategy, the painful choices faced by commanders and statesmen, and the agonies inflicted on the millions of ordinary Americans who were compelled to swallow their fears and face battle as best they could.The American People in World War II is a gripping narrative and an invaluable analysis of the trials and victories through which modern America was formed.
