From Our Editors

Could Americans survive the kind of devastation endured by the Germans in the Second World War? This is one of the troubling questions posed by Earl R. Beck in Under The Bombs, The German Home Front, 1942-1945. The civilian population went to work, tried to keep their homes in some kind of order, and attempted to live as normally as possible amid the chaos of war. The professor emeritus of history at Florida State captures the horror of total war, and examines the unique difficulties of trying to make public complaints in a totalitarian state.
