Product Description
This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - The American Homefront. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

The United States did not want to become involved the World War II fighting. Prior to World War II, the United States possessed a large population, generous natural resources, an advanced infrastructure, and a solid capital base.

Content to resupply the European allies the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, changed all of that. The rapid centralization and mobilization of resources coupled with the determination and sacrifice of American citizens at home, changed the outlook of the war. Congress passed the War Powers Act, granting wide authority to the President to conduct the war effort. During the war hundreds more alphabet agencies were created to manage the American home front.

The accomplishments of the American public were nothing short of miraculous. The navy had fewer than 5,000 vessels prior to the bombing at Pearl Harbor. By 1945, they had over 90,000. In addition, over 80,000 tanks and nearly 300,000 aircraft were produced during the war years. Millions of machine guns and rifles and billions of ammunition cartridges rolled off American production lines. New industries like synthetic rubber flourished, and old ones were rejuvenated.

The presentation covers the following:
