Front Cover
Enslow Publishing, LLC, Jan 1, 2010 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 64 pages
Poignant photographs and high-interest text are used to illustrate how the Great Depression hit America like a mighty storm. Millions of workers lost their jobs. Families were forced to scrounge for food. It was the worst economic tragedy in American history. The nation forged ahead. A new president promised a New Deal for America. Franklin D. Roosevelt told Americans that they had nothing "to fear but fear itself." He fought tirelessly to end the Great Depression. Meanwhile in Germany, Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seized power. Warlike military officers did the same in Japan. Readers will learn about the 1930s and what lay ahead.
