Description:

P EM Myth and the Greatest Generation /EM calls into question the glowing paradigm of the World War II generation set up by such books as EM The Greatest Generation /EM by Tom Brokaw. /P P Including analysis of news reports, memoirs, novels, films and other cultural artefacts Ken Rose shows the war was much more disruptive to the lives of Americans in the military and on the home front than is generally acknowledged. Issues of racial, labor unrest, juvenile delinquency, and marital infidelity were rampant, and the black market flourished. /P P /P P This book delves into both personal and national issues, calling into questions the dominant view of World War II as The Good War. /P
