    "Top recommendation of the week...Steven Schechter's reconstructive essay is a model of it's kind." TV GUIDE

    "An astutely conceived and superbly crafted work." . DAVID KENNEDY, STANFORD UNIV.

    "A superb documentary film." CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

    THE HOMEFRONT is the story of the American people during WW2. Widely regarded as a classic, the LA Times reported "the film does an exceptional job of recreating the panic, the pressures, the shame and the pride of America between 1941 and 1945."

    Newsreels, cartoons, period music and Hollywood films blend with dramatic personal reminiscences of a wide cross-section of Americans. Viewers will be fascinated and moved by the memories of a Gold Star mother, defense plant workers, Japanese internees, soldiers called up and others.

    THE HOMEFRONT also brings to light the profound social and economic changes, mostly dramatic but sometimes subtle, that war brought to American society:
