Jordan Braverman's eloquent narrative account of media participation in World War II is comprehensive enough to satisfy the most rigorous academic standards, but written to be accessible to all readers. To Hasten the Homecoming is an important cultural history of the American home front during World War II, which examines how popular culture reinforced patriotic sentiments and united an innocent country to defeat a common enemy. Braverman provides readers with a deep insight into America's national identity and self-perceptions during the most savage war in history.
