University Express - In the Dark Streets of Christmas 1941 to the Glad Tidings of Christmas 1945

At the start of 1941, as Europe and Asia were engulfed in war, our nation remained officially isolationist and neutral. All of that changed on December 7, 1941 when we too were plunged into the war that changed our way of life forever. At war’s end in 1945, a broken world looked to our country for sustenance, and the U.S. became the most powerful nation on Earth. We’ll focus on the usually happy Christmas season to show the depth of the changes in our society.
