Reviews

A New York Times Bestseller

"An unexpected and welcome discovery in a time capsule. . . . even after all these years, and all those countless previous books about the wartime home front, Cooke has interesting things to tell us." -Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post

"He filed lated, but boy, did he get it right." -William Grimes, The New York Times

"The American Home Front teems with Cooke's eloquence and insight.... His whole book is a tale told with easy elegance." -Harry Levins, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Here are the antecedents of who we are now, grasped with a clarity and foresight that is all the more stunning for having been hidden away in a closet for nearly sixty years." -Verlyn Klinkenborg, Bookforum
