World War II [electronic resource]: World at War

Starting with Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, this program follows the United States through its mobilization for war and into battle in North Africa, Europe, and the Pacific. It also explains the dramatic domestic changes that total war made necessary-from rationing and recycling, to war bonds and government economic controls, to new roles for women in society-and the dawning of the Atomic Age, with its perilous implications for the postwar world. Correlates to standards from the National Council for the Social Studies.
