American Historical Review

Jennifer Brooks, the author of a fine book on World War II veterans and Civil Rights, reviewed A Nation Forged in War in the April 2012 American Historical Review. The link to JSTOR, if you have access, is here.

The review begins:

In this study, Thomas Bruscino examines how white veterans embedded ethnic and religious pluralism brought home from World War II in the American Cold War consensus. Bruscino builds his thesis on a mix of sources, including letters, memoirs, government documents, and the GI Roundtable pamphlet series produced during the war by the American Historical Association. His well‐written, accessible narrative will interest both scholars of war and society and the general public.
