Home Front from the Author: Kristin Hannah. In her bestselling novels Kristin Hannah has plumbed the depths of friendship, the loyalty of sisters, and the secrets mothers keep. Now, in her most emotionally powerful story yet, she explores the intimate landscape of a troubled marriage with this provocative and timely portrait of a husband and wife, in love and at war. All marriages have a breaking point. All families have wounds. All wars have a cost. . . . Like many couples, Michael and Jolene Zarkades have to face the pressures of everyday life---children, careers, bills, chores---even as their twelve-year marriage is falling apart. Then an unexpected deployment sends Jolene deep into harm's way and leaves defense attorney Michael at home, unaccustomed to being a single parent to their two girls. As a mother, it agonizes Jolene to leave her family, but as a solider she has always understood the true meaning of duty. In her letters home, she paints a rose-colored version of her life on the front lines, shielding her family from the truth. But war will change Jolene in ways that none of them could have foreseen. When tragedy strikes, Michael must face his darkest fear and fight a battle of his own---for everything that matters to his family. At once a profoundly honest look at modern marriage and a dramatic exploration of the toll war takes on an ordinary American family, Home Front is a story of love, loss, heroism, honor, and ultimately, hope.

On The Home Front from the Author: Kate Darian-Smith. What really happened on the Australian home front during the Second World War? For the people of Melbourne these were years of social dislocation and increased government interference in all aspects of daily life. On the Home Front is the story of their work, leisure, relationships and their fears—for by 1942 the city was pitted with air raid trenches, and in the half-light of the brownout Melburnians awaited a Japanese invasion. As women left the home to replace men in factories and offices, the traditional roles of mothers and wives were challenged. The presence of thousands of American soldiers in Melbourne raised new questions about Australian nationalism and identity, and the 'carnival spirit' of many on the home front created anxiety about the issues of drunkenness, gambling and sexuality. Kate Darian-Smith's classic and evocative study of Melbourne in wartime draws upon the memories of men and women who lived through those turbulent years when society grappled with the tensions between a restrictive government and new opportunities for social and sexual freedoms.

On The Home Front from the Author: Michele Stenehjem Gerber.

Located in southeastern Washington State, the Hanford Site produced the plutonium used in the atomic bombs that ended World War II.

The third edition contains a new introduction by John M. Findlay and a new epilogue by the author.

Homefront from the Author: Catherine Lutz. In this book Catherine Lutz takes a look at how the American twentieth century was shaped by our obsession with war preparation. Home to Fort Bragg, the largest U.S. Army base, Fayetteville has earned the nicknames Fatalville and Fayettenam. Unusual and not-so-unusual features of the town include gross income inequalities, an extraordinarily high incidence of venereal disease, miles and miles of strip malls, and a history of racial violence. Although most Americans don't live in military towns, Lutz's history of Fayetteville reveals the burdens that military preparedness creates for all of us. Homefront identifies military preparedness as an invisible yet profound shaper of American life in the twentieth century. Without condemning the military, the book prompts new ways of thinking about the place of organized violence in America.
