Featured Subject: World War II

Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. … As commander in chief of the Army and Navy I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense. But always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us. . . ”

— President Franklin D. Roosevelt, December 8, 1941

World War II began in 1939, but the United States didn’t enter the war until the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Eventually, America would join the Allied forces in a world war that would not be concluded until Japan’s unconditional surrender on September 2, 1945.

To commemorate December 7, 1941, “a date which will live in infamy,” we are featuring our collection of World War II resources that are currently in our catalog. You can also see these items by starting with our Subject Index and then choosing Military History Index > World War II.

This book is a study of those obsessions." — Larry Hedrick, Author, in "Enemies of the American Order" (page 5)
