1940's was perhaps the greatest decade in
American history. It was a time when the
fate of democracy hinged on the backs of
the brave young men fighting overseas with
the Allied Forces in World War II against
the tyranny of Hitler and the fascist regime.
The war ended when the Atomic Bomb was dropped
on Japan, and a Cold War began with the
Soviet Union. When our solders returned
home, it turned out that our economy wasn't
the only thing that was excited, as the
stork visited houses in record numbers during
the Baby Boom. In the 1940's Eisenhower
expanded the highway system and the suburbs
became the place to raise a family. And
who could forget the nail biter election
of 1948 where Harry S. Truman defeated Dewey.
After the blockade of Berlin in 1948 was
thwarted by United Sates airlifts, in 1949
NATO was formed to protect the world from
we have dropped the Atomic Bomb on Japan?
