MEDIA REVIEWS
?This smart and imaginative collection conveys the weight of war, from battlefront to homefront; it should encourage students to confront the ambiguities and paradoxes of America?s ?good war.?? - Beth Bailey, Temple University ?This superb documentary reader will make an excellent supplementary text for courses in World War II, U.S. military history, and modern America. It includes a wide range of telling documents that together help illuminate the complexity, scope, and impact of the world's most devastating conflict.? - Robert J. McMahon, Ohio State University ?With his introduction that effectively synthesizes key issues and competing views, Piehler invites students to analyze documents and form their own critical opinions of WWII and its impact on the postwar world history. Simply the best reader available on this subject.? - Masugi Shimada, Kyoto University
