This course is a view of the war from the perspective of the home front, which experienced tremendous social and economic change as it pursued the objective of maximum production of the weapons of armed conflict. While the attack on Pearl Harbor broke the country’s neutrality and brought it to war, the war itself highlighted unresolved domestic social problems as the American people, seemingly united, became 'the great arsenal of democracy'.

Renee Melchiorre has a BA from the University of Michigan and an MA from the University of Kansas where she taught classes on the Rise of Industrial America, the Great Depression: 1929-1940 and the Culture of Paternalism and the Ford Motor Company: the UAW, Women and Wartime Priorities.
