Since you went away : World War II letters from American women on the home front by Judy Barrett Litoff( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawn from a large archive of wartime correspondence, Since You Went Away collects hundreds of letters written by women of all backgrounds and ages from all over the United States: from Midwestern farms to the Hawaiian Islands, from young girls to anxious mothers. The letters are sometimes touching, sometimes anguished, and always packed with intimate glimpses of the World War II era. With men on the frontlines, women took to repairing cars, balancing budgets, and responding with imagination to all kinds of hardships and wartime shortages ("I stopped at the Piggly Wiggly but could not get fresh meat of any kind, so found that Spam fried in butter made a very tasty Easter dinner."). An entire section is devoted to courtship, so much of which took place through the mail, and another chapter concentrates on letters written by women about their experiences at work ("The more I see of war plants the more I believe that they're dragging this damn war out as long as possible on purpose...here it seems as tho' they have so much money they don't know what to do with it."). Nor does this collection spare the pain women felt upon learning about the loss of their husbands, lovers, or sons. A pictorial essay gives readers a further window into the war, displaying images, cartoons, and posters. One poster reads: "Be With Him at Every Mail Call," giving an idea of just how important letters were to the men and women of this time

Fighting fascism in Europe : the World War II letters of an American veteran of the Spanish Civil War by Lawrence Cane( )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a different kind of war story: both a powerful chronicle of life in battle and a unique portrait of courage fueled by a life-long passion for political justice." "Cane's fight for freedom began well before D-Day. In 1937, he joined the Abraham Lincoln Brigade and was wounded fighting for democracy in Spain. In 1942, at the age of 30, he enlisted in the new war against fascism. As an officer with the 238th Engineer Combat Battalion, he went ashore on Utah Beach to clear mines, destroy fortifications, and open roads from Normandy to the Siegfried Line. Of the 400 American veterans of the Spanish Civil War in World War II, Cane was the only one to go ashore with the assault wave on D-Day." "After the war, Lawrence Cane was active in civil rights and peace causes until his death in 1976. Discovered in 1995 by his son David, his letters are not only classic accounts of war and unforgettable expressions of love for family. They are the fiercely patriotic words of a left wing, working class New York Jew (and one-time Communist Party member) who knew exactly why we fought - to create a better world by destroying all forms of fascism one battle at a time."--BOOK JACKET
American women in a world at war : contemporary accounts from World War II by Judy Barrett Litoff( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title brings together twenty-five writings by women who share their rich and varied World War II experiences, from serving in the military to working on the home front to preparing for the postwar world. By providing evidence of their active and resourceful roles in the war effort as workers, wives, and mothers, these women offer eloquent testimony that World War II was indeed everybody's war. Litoff and Smith combine pieces by well-known writers, such as Margaret Culkin Banning and Nancy Wilson Ross, with important-but largely forgotten-personal accounts by ordinary women living in extraordinary times. -- Publisher description

The first century : a history of the University of Maine, 1865-1965 by David C Smith( Book )

5 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus in this history of the University of Maine's first century is on the problems facing administrators and trustees in keeping the institution alive and growing in an environment both politically and socially hostile to public higher education. The establishment and growth of the early university are described, and special periods in its history are given particular attention: the two world wars and the depression. The inner life of the university is also considered, and student life is portrayed from the spartan existence of the early days to the more elaborate patterns of the 1950's and l960'S. Social life, fraternities, and athletics are included. Documentation includes many photographs and other illustrations from the university archives. (Mse)
