abstract
Comprising extensive collections sourced from The National WWII Museum, New Orleans, this digital resource shows how World War Two changed American society and the economy, how it impacted individuals and their families, and the legacy of the war in human terms. From enlistment and training to deployment on the US Home Front or on campaigns overseas, the personal stories of these men and women demonstrate the broad spectrum of American involvement in the conflict. American military and civilian participation in all major theaters of operations is represented, whilst service branches range from the army, navy and air force, to the marines, merchant marines, coast guard, women's forces and medical personnel. Personal letters, diaries, photographs, artifacts and military records offer insight into operations in the Pacific, the D-Day landings in Europe and the post-war occupation of Germany.
