What was the best/worst fad of the 40's?
The 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 Soviet aggression.

Should we have dropped the Atomic Bomb on Japan?
