How does war change and define their lives, and how does this affected populace, in turn, shape American society? Through the copious use of primary sources, Letters from the Homefront offers first-hand, sometimes poignant insight into the impact of war on Americas civilian population. Letters and diaries as well as an array of other documents from the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combine with key background information to take the reader through the course of each war, from inception to aftermath. What emerges is a fascinating snapshot of life on the American homefront.
