Summary
  • "A City at War focuses on the experiences of working men and women in a community that was not a wartime boomtown. Milwaukee was a community of established factories and neighborhoods. Within this context, workers and their families sacrificed for the war effort but also took steps to ensure a better future when the war was over. As wartime wages failed to keep pace with inflation, workers and unions worried about maintaining job and earning power in a postwar world. As managers and companies profited from the war, they worried about controlling production costs and meeting the challenges of postwar competitors."
  • "At a time when the United States is at war and there are simplistic calls for national unity and patriotism, A City at War provides readers with a complex view of the home front and the way Americans responded to the most significant war of the twentieth century."--Jacket
