Dr. James Kimble of Seaton Hall University discusses U.S. Army's World War II Office of Civilian Defense efforts to convince the home front to make greater sacrifices in support of the war effort despite the U.S. government’s fervent censorship of American servicemen’s death on the battlefield. Since the imagery of death was officially censored early in the conflict, the campaign became a defining moment for the emotional involvement of civilians in what had been, for many, a distant war. Dr. Kimble reveals vital connections between the home front and the battlefront, and critiques the Roosevelt Administration's handling of the war's most gruesome propaganda.
