The 40s was time of sorrow and patriotism as well as hope and new beginnings. Commonly known as ‘the war years,’ this era is synonymous with World War II.
The early years of this decade were dominated by World War II, that involved and affected many countries all around the world. Families experience food shortages, and rationing and school lessons were often disrupted or given in the outdoors as many school buildings had been damaged or destroyed during the fighting.
