Students will learn how Americans joined the Allies to defeat Axis militarism and nationalist expansion. Sixteen million Americans donned uniforms in this section of the online exhibition The Price of Freedom: Americans at War . The millions more who stayed home comprised a vast civilian army, mobilized by the government to support the war effort.
