America On the Home Front DOWNLOAD
Download includes all programs and PDF of Original Album Cover
A journey across America during one of the most turbulent times in its history.
Beginning right after the Great Depression – after suffering great hardship – and looking forward to a brighter future the people of America saw the expanding war in Europe with many of our allies falling under Nazi domination.
The day after Pearl Harbor, Dec. 8, 1941, the US declared war on the Empire of Japan. On Dec. 11, 1941 Germany and Italy declared war on the US and now we were immediately in the European war as well.
Skillfully written and narrated by William B. Williams, Edward Brown and Frank Gorin the story of this great nation is brought vividly to life for the listener with actual recordings of President Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, General MacArthur and many others.
The narratives are woven with Big Band music, segments of popular radio programs and motion pictures that helped keep American spirits high.
This set tells the story of World War II on the American Homefront in a way that clearly explains why Tom Brokaw used the words “The Greatest Generation” to describe those who grew up in the United States during the Great Depression and then went to fight in World War II – as well as all that made great sacrifices and contributions to the war effort from the American Home Front.
