A People at War

World War II Women , Homefront

"This exhibit highlights the contributions of the thousands of Americans, both military and civilian, who served their country during World War II. Documents from the National Archives and Records Administration's (NARA) National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis form the core of the exhibit. For those who lived through the Second World War, this exhibit may help them recall their experiences. For those who did not, it is hoped they will gain a deeper understanding of the sacrifice and commitment of those Americans who, after almost 4 years, were 'A People at War.'" Major sections of the exhibit include: Prelude to War, New Roles, Women Who Served, The War in the Pacific, The War in Europe, Science Pitches In, The War is Over. Most sections include pictures, personal rememberances and links to more information.
