History Of World War II The American Housing Crisis
The attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 ushered in a dramatic transformation in the life of Americans. Most able-bodied men enlisted for war and were shipped to distant shores to fight the enemy. The country faced an acute shortage of skilled manpower at home. One of the areas that suffered the most was housing. Thus, when the war was over, the victorious army returned home only to be confronted by another challenge-the lack of adequate housing.This informative DVD deals with the post-war housing crisis and the efforts of government agencies to solve the problem.
