on the American Home Front: A Look at the Changing
Lifestyles and Varying Roles of Women During World War II

The secondary source is in perspective of British Historian Paul Kennedy, arguing in his work of 1989 that whilst soldiers value total war, it leaves home fronts in a state of economic and social calamity. The origin aids in reliability, as the date of 1988 was post-war, and thus was no censorship on what historians wrote, meaning Kennedy’s descriptions are free of external control. The narrow perspective Kennedy limits the reliability, evident in his favorable comparisons of the allied home…
