The Forties was a decade dominated by World War II. Nazi Germany advanced on most of the European continent, and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor spurned the United States to join in the global conflict. Following the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt, President Harry Truman put an end to the war with the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, while the long road to recovery had already begun in Europe. Mahatma Gandhi became a face for peaceful protest amidst global decolonization, and Jackie Robinson became a face for integration as the first African-American Major League Baseball player. Everyone supported the war, with many Hollywood entertainers, most famously Bob Hope, volunteering with the newly-formed USO to help boost troop morale. Big Band leader Glenn Miller was too old to be drafted, but volunteered to lead an Army band. And while films like Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator made light of the war, others such as How Green Was My Valley and The Best Years of Our Lives echoed the thoughts of a world that by the end of a decade was still in recovery and looking to move forward.

    4Great gift idea
    By MadMan
    The flickback DVD is a great gift for someone who enjoys a quick flashback to the days when they were young. It gives a good overview of TV shows, world news occurring at that time, fashions, movies, and funny fads during the time period of your choosing. I enjoyed watching this dvd and giving it as a gift.

    By Marvin X. Beck
    My wife was born in 1942 and we thought this dvd would be of interest at her birthday party. It captured key events of that year.
