Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
This video explores conditions on the home front during the war. From outright indifference to a violently contested debate that threatened to shatter the nation, the path of national discourse about the war is followed and investigated. Events of the war are held against changes in public opinion and the vicious relationship between both is examined. Broad in scope and responsible in detail, this video makes good use of the huge amount of archival film available on the war. Its serious tone and responsible history makes this episode entirely appropriate for use in the college classroom.
