Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 092952151X, Paperback)The author does not pretend that this is the definitive chronicle of World War II. Yet this remarkable compilation of photographs and memorabilia will bring back vivid memories of the era for those who lived through it, and--better yet--make it intensely real for those who did not experience it firsthand. Stan Cohen clearly remembers it all: victory gardens; scrap drives; air raid drills; women welders and drill press workers; children in gas masks; Fiorello La Guardia and the Civilian Defense Corps. There's even a photo of Joe Cobb of Our Gang comedies working on a B-52 bomber.
