Allan M Winkler Home Front USA America during World War II Illinois Harlan Davidson 2000 The book Home Front USA was about life in America during World War II It is basically a text book that goes in great detail about the home front in USA during the war The purpose of the book was simply to educate people of what went on in America during the war He really focuses on the popular mood of the time and public policy of the time The book is split up into four chapters The first chapter deals mostly with mobilization in America It tells about how businesses reacted to the war and how we paid for the war as well The second chapter deals with American society during the war It told how people reacted to the war and what people were like during the war The third chapter deals with women and the different ethnic groups and how the war affected them The fourth chapter deals with politics during the war The beginning of the book shows how President Franklin D Roosevelt which was the president at the time of WWII dealt with the war Winkler had nothing but praises about FDR and what he did In the late 30s Roosevelt started to worry because war in Europe was threatening and our technology and army were very poor America was still recovering from WWI and we were very sluggish In 1939 when the war broke out in Europe the president recognized how important American production would be on the war effort He asked congress for 1 billion for the production of 50000 planes Roosevelt appointed a War Resources Board to examine the needs of the economy He also created the Office of Production Management in 1941 He did this to stimulate the industrial production and resolve labor and raw materials problems This agency failed because it lacked the statutory authority to back up the requests
