Description: During WWII, Americans learned to do without while U.S. servicemen were overseas, but the soldiers' return from war soon initiated a dramatic change in our economy. The 1950s saw unmatched demand for housing, automobiles and consumer goods as well as the start of the "baby boom". During this time, Americans created Levittowns, television, interstates and Howard Johnsons. Housewives prepared frozen foods in microwaves or took the family to new fast-food chains. Roads were vastly expanded and air travel took off with the coming of cross-continent jets. American mutual funds sent the stock markets into the stratosphere, and Silicon Valley, alone, created more wealth in 20 years than any other country on Earth.

The Great Boom is the first major book on how America's WWII veterans literally rebuilt and totally revitalized America as it exists today. Their individual stories are woven throughout this engrossing narrative.
