Part II,Chapter 14 :America at War:
Overview:

After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, millions of Americans enlisted in the armed forces, risking their lives in the struggle. The first year of the war for America proved difficult as it fought in two fronts with a relatively inexperienced army. But after key victories in late 1942, America and the Allies had turned the tied against the Axis powers. America's industrial might and personal sacrifices on the home front helped insure eventual victory. But it was the bravery of the American and their allied soldiers that won the great victory, ending the conflict which cost over 50 million lives.
