When we think of World War Two, we think of the Normady Invasion, or the Battle of the Bulge, but there is another battle that is barely mentioned in the history books. This was the battle on the homefront, here in the United States. This battle was fought by most Americans including my grandma, Ethel. She was twenty-two at the time and had her boyfriend, friends and family in the war. She bought victory bonds and stamps, and had to suffer through the shortages of the time. She had two close friends die in Japanese concentration camps after the war. So the next time you think of the hard fought battles that our soldiers fought hard for think of this second battle fought by millions.
