Alistair Cooke's American Journey: Life on the Home Front in the Second World War is an extraordinary travelogue, celebrating the spirit of a nation that would inspire Cooke's legendary broadcasts for the next sixty years.

Within weeks of the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941, Cooke set off to see the effects of the war on ordinary Americans, from miners to lumberjacks, Pullman porters to peanut farmers and even Japanese-Americans interned in stark desert prison camps.

Thought to have been lost for years, this enthralling account of Alistair Cooke's travels through American during the Second World War was rediscovered just before his death.
