Description of the book "World War II and the American Dream: How Wartime Building Changed a Nation":
Donald Albrecht is Guest Curator of the exhibition "World War II and the American Dream" at the National Building Museum.
Among the legacies of World War II was a massive building program on a scale that America had not seen before and has not seen since. The war effort created thousands of factories and homes, evidence of an unprecedented ability to harness the power and resources of a people. The legacy of this period in our nation's history is discussed from a different perspective by each essay contributor.
