World War II Photos General Douglas MacArthur wades ashore during initial landings at Leyte, P.I., October, 1944. Cropped from Select List number 150.

World War II: Home Front World War II, or "The Good War" as it has often been called, ushered in new opportunity, new prosperity, and an entirely new lifestyle for many Americans. Wartime mobilization pulled the American economy out of depression by employing millions and invigorating the nation as a whole. "The Good War," however, didn't provide the remedy for many social problems, and in some cases rapid population movement, concern over national security, and wartime rhetoric only exacerbated racial, ethnic, and class-based tensions at home. Another world war... and so soon after the first!

Some sample objectives and questions for a unit of study on World War II might include: Why, after the costs of World War I, did nations choose to fight another World War? Why were the civilian costs of World War II so much higher than World War I?

World War Two The Second World War was a period of intensive air force activity spanning all the disciplines of offensive and flying operations and ground-based defence. Air roles included offensive bomber, day fighter, night fighter, anti-shipping strike, transport and flying training. Land-based roles included the Chain Home High and Chain Home Low RADAR stations at RAF Stenigot, RAF Skendleby and RAF Ingoldmels, schools covering air armaments, air gunnery and other ground defence disciplines. The sea-based air-sea rescue launches of Coastal Command should not be overlooked.
