“The Good War” is a collection of interviews of those who lived through World War 2 – non-combatant civilians including children, Nazi slave laborers, Holocaust survivors, merchant seamen, servicemen, black US servicemen, a conscientious objector, “Rosie the Riveter”, USO and Red Cross workers, men and women who worked …

In The Good War Terkel presents the good, the bad, and the ugly memories of World War II from a perspective of forty years of after the events. No matter how gruesome the memories are, relatively few of the interviewees said they would have been better off without the experience. It was a central and formative experience in their lives. Although 400,000 Americans perished, the United States itself was not attacked again after Pearl Harbor, the economy grew, and there was a new sense of world power that invigorated the country. Some women and African Americans experienced new freedoms in the post war society, but good life after World War II was tarnished by the threat of nuclear war.
