  • The Second World War engulfed most of the world’s nations and all of the great powers. Drawn from the NPR archives, this collection puts a human face on the deadliest conflict in history. A vast panorama of stories, memories, and first-person accounts, it covers the European front, the Pacific front, and the home front, the experiences of African American airmen, Japanese Americans in internment camps, women in factories and women at war. Harrowing, heartbreaking, and deeply personal, it’s an intimate, engaging way to learn more about the war that changed the world.
