A look at the World War II home front, and some questions about America's ability to again match that effort in the face of growing world tensions.

While young men, middle-age fathers and young women marched off to serve their country on foreign soils, Americans at home endured blackouts, struggled with a complicated rationing system, learned new jobs, worked seven days a week, paid higher taxes, bought war bonds and salvaged everything from newspapers to scrap iron to kitchen grease.

The efforts and sacrifices American citizens made on the World War home front contrasts dramatically with recent wars in which most citizens proceed calmly with their daily lives and ambitions.

The World War II citizen efforts are described in Carroll Trosclair's 166-page book, "America's Last Real Home Front," available from Amazon.
