This site is dedicated to telling the amazing story of the World War II Home Front through original, primary source content. In collaboration with America’s Allies (primarily England and Canada), sixteen million American men and about 350,000 American women joined the Armed Forces to liberate western Europe from Hitler’s Nazi Germany and defeat the Axis Powers (Germany, Italy and Imperial Japan). Another five to six million American women went to work in factories performing jobs previously done solely by men. Finally, about ten million American women worked outside the home in vital jobs such as typists, nurses, secretaries, and cooks. Rosie the Riveter is an iconic symbol representing all of these 16 million women.
