"Rosie the Riveter" is the star of this special video program which highlights the sweeping social transformation that rocked American society on the Home Front from 1941-1945. At the 70th Anniversary of World War II, it is a good time to reflect on how America has changed. For example, as men left their jobs to enlist in the Armed Forces, millions of women joined the labor force as factories expanded to fill the needs of wartime production. American movie and radio stars such as Bob Hope, The Andrews Sisters, Abbott and Costello, and many others supporting the war effort by entertaining our troops and selling War Bonds.

This nostalgic documentary, presented by producer Harvey Chertok, includes newsreels, propaganda, movies, music and humor to show how traditional American ideals, lifestyles, morals and ethics changed during the war.
