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, why the United States emerged victorious, and why the consequences of victory were sometimes sweet, how it fought the war, sometimes ironic.

The Best War Ever The American Moment

Johns Hopkins University Press #ad - It was liberating for women. But according to historian Michael C. Ambrose and Tom Brokaw. The best war ever charts the complex diplomatic problems of the 1930s and reveals the realities of ground combat: no moral triumph, it was in truth a brutal slog across a blasted landscape. Adams, our memory of the war era as a golden age is distorted.

The war was good for the economy. In the book, originally published in 1994, Adams challenges stereotypes to present a view of World War II that avoids the simplistic extremes of both glorification and vilification. C. A battle of tanks and airplanes, it was a "cleaner" war than World War I. He contrasts it with modern-day rhetoric surrounding the War on Terror, while analyzing the real-world consequences that result from distorting the past, including the dangerous idea that only through perpetual military conflict can we achieve lasting peace.

Although we did not seek the conflict—or so we believed—Americans nevertheless rallied in support of the war effort, all twelve million of them, and the nation’s soldiers, were proud to fight. The revised book also incorporates substantial developments that have occurred in our understanding of the course and character of the war, particularly in terms of the human consequences of fighting.

The Best War Ever The American Moment #ad - . Meanwhile, in europe and asia, shell-shocked soldiers grappled with emotional and physical trauma, rigorously enforced segregation, and rampant venereal disease. In preparing this must-read new edition, the allied strategic bombing campaign, Adams has consulted some seventy additional sources on topics as varied as the origins of Social Security and a national health system, and the relationship of traumatic brain injuries to the adjustment problems of veterans.
