Growing Up in World War II

Growing Up in World War II by Judith Pinkerton Josephson

This book chronicles the lives of several children who grew up during World War II and how the war affected their diet, pastimes, toys, etc. It was a vivid picture of how life was affected by the war, even though it was not fought on our soil. The varied people highlighted had very different experiences across the races: losing loved ones, collecting scrap metal, rationing sugar and gas, etc. I found myself asking the question: would Americans be as willing to deny themselves and fight for the war effort as they were in WWII?
