Description by OLDIES.com:

As World War II raged in Europe and the Pacific, the fate of the free world hung in the balance. The U.S. Government produced these dramatic films to alert Americans that it was essential for every citizen to contribute and sacrifice for our war against the Axis Powers.

America's Hidden Weapon: Farmers rally their resources and make tremendous sacrifices to dramatically increase production in order to feed our troops and help bring relief to war refugees.

Civilian Defense: Citizens prepare for attacks on American soil. The organization of early warning, rescue and relief systems as well as procedures for dealing with an incendiary bomb in the attic are explained.

Community At War: Communities are strained to the breaking point by the enormous influx of war workers rushing in to address the production crisis.

Furlough: America's battle-weary heroes return home for R&R.

Gas Racket: The U.S. Government puts its full weight behind prosecuting the "traitors" who would counterfeit gas rationing stamps.

Glamour Girls Of 1943: America's womanhood rallies to learn "men's trades" in every area of industry including the manufacturing of airplanes, tanks, arms and munitions.

It's Up To You: This educational short demonstrates how selfish black market activities hurt our troops.

No Alternative: Cheating on gas rationing costs the lives of American troops abroad.

No Exceptions: The world wide crisis requires that EVERY single American citizen find some way to contribute to the war effort.

Product Description:

Containing vintage footage, WORLD WAR II HOMEFRONT is a fascinating documentary about the roles women played on American soil during wartime.
