American domestic propaganda during World War II. Fascinating pamphlets including "Do You Want Your Wife to Work After the War?" and "Can the Germans Be Re-educated?" As the site says: "The American Historical Association produced the G.I. Roundtable Series to help win World War II. Or so they were led to believe. In fact the U.S. Army sought the pamphlets as part of a larger effort to prepare for the transition to the postwar world, and represent a novel effort at social control. "
