Book Review: The 40's The Story of a Decade

The 40's The Story of A Decade

The New Yorker

Copyright 2014

This is a collection of articles written for The New Yorker Magazine dealing with such subjects as the Fall of France the Start of the Second Word War.  This book takes us back in history to the 1940s.   

This book not only deals with what was happening abroad in the 1940s it also deals with what was happening in the states.  The articles in this section deal with tough issues such as lynching in the south to presidential elections but it also deals with things such as the Miss America pageant. 

The book deals with thepost war as well with things such as the Nuremberg trials as wellas Nazi art theft.

This book also gives you character studies of such greats as Walt Disney, Walter Winchell (Gossip Columnist) and Duke Ellington.   

This book also has sections of poetry and fiction written for The New Yorker Magazine written in the 1940s.   I would definitely recommend this book for those who have interest in th 40's.   

Five out of five stars...
