    One thought on “Mobilizing the Home Front: War Bonds and Domestic Propaganda

    1. Matt on said:

      Kimble's study on war bonds is unrivaled. His thesis that the war bond program mobilized the home front in a militaristic pattern is really well supported, as is his argument that the bond program went in 3 phases: conflating soldiers and civilians, making that relationship favor soldiers in effort to the guilt of civilians, and demobilization. Well worth reading for anyone interested in the American home front.
