The Home Front – Audio Drama 1940’s War Years presents the eight part documentary “The Home Front: The Drama of the War Years : Music – People – Events”

Released in 1994, this 5-1/2 hour audio documentary is quite informative and very entertaining as it takes you through the political, military and entertainment events of the war years, and the effects on the lives and culture of everyday Americans.

    Received this set as a gift from my grandfather many years ago, and to this day it may be my favorite form of entertainment.

    I really enjoyed the Home Front well put together. I will refer to friends that love the 1940’s as I do.
