7 World War II’s Effect on America

8 For millions of American families, the war meant separation from loved their ones serving overseas. Those at home lived in fear of receiving a telegram announcing that a family member had been killed, wounded, or captured. With the war effort came sacrifices.

9 With industries making war materials, Americans faced shortages of many consumer goods. After 1942, for example, automakers stopped making new cars and turned instead to making tanks, planes, and trucks. Women could not buy stockings. Silk imports from war-torn Asia had halted, and nylon was needed to make parachutes.

10 In addition many resources and goods needed for the war effort were rationed, consumers could buy only limited numbers of them. Americans used government-issued books of ration coupons to purchase certain items, such as shoes, gasoline, tires, sugar, and meat. When people ran out of coupons, they did without the rationed items. But because Americans overwhelmingly supported the war effort, they generally accepted inconveniences and shortages with good spirits.
