The 1940's - a decade of hard work

Coming out of the Great Depression, the world faced another challenge in the 1940's: World War II. Although the war began in the 1930's, it expanded and gained in ferocity (and atrocities) in the 1940's. At the end of the decade, soldiers returned home and the Greatest Generation began creating the Baby Boomer generation.
