Product Overview

World War II raged in Europe, but America, secure behind three thousand miles of surging Atlantic, did not hear the distant guns. Suddenly war, like a charging tiger, was here. The authoras vivid firsthand account takes us from the Depression into boiling tension in the Caribbean and South America. Then war at home and in the vast Pacific, peace and slow recovery, new products and ideas. You meet the people who created the ads, sold the cars, and baked the bread in a thriving peaceful land. In a flash, tranquility vanished with the crack of Lee Harvey Oswaldas Mannlicher-Carcano Model l891 Rifle. The Dallas tragedy marked the end of an era. Stress and apprehension moved across the land, destined to haunt through the years. For those who were there, this book is a vivid reminder. For those who were not, it is a rare slice of history.
