"Gittin' Through: A Southern Town During World War II", by Roy T. Matthews, published by Trafford Publishing, 2011, First Edition, signed and inscribed by the author on the title page.
"Gittin'Through" sets this turning point in American history in a small southern town where traditions, class and race defined its citizens and the roles they played. It shows how the three generations coped with the conflict while they made a living, reared their families, took care of the elderly, fell in love, lost loved ones, struggled to hold a marriage together, and choose right and wrong ways to profit from the war. Like all generations, they carried the burdens of the past into their own times in order to prepare for the future.
The book follows three generations whose lives were changed by the war: The oldest generation, who had kicked up their heels in the Jazz Age and suffered through the Great Depression, adjusted to rationing and worried if their children would be sent to war. The youngest generation endured the traumas of adolescence while trying to sort out what the war meant to them. The middle generation anguished over their fate, left Madison to serve their country or remained on the home front.
