Summary
"America in the Forties is a readable and concise narrative that tells the story of the forties in the United States. The book argues that the forties were an important period in American life, shaped by charismatic, brilliant, and sometimes controversial leaders. It traces the entire decade, from the first stirrings of war in a nation consumed by the Great Depression, through the fights with Europe and Japan and through to the start of the Cold War and the dawn of the atomic age.
