Texte du rabat

At the conclusion of World War II, Americans anxiously contemplated the return to peace. It was an uncertain time, rife with concerns about demobilization, inflation, strikes, and the return of a second Great Depression. Balanced against these challenges was the hope in a future of unparalleled opportunities for a generation raised in hard times and war. One of the remarkable untold stories of postwar America is the successful assimilation of sixteen million veterans back into civilian society after 1945. The G.I. generation returned home filled with the same sense of fear and hope that most citizens felt at the time. Their transition from conflict to normalcy is one of the greatest chapters in American history.
