*  Post–World War II baby boom
... The end of World War II brought a baby boom to many countries, especially Western ones. There is some disagreement as to the precise beginning and ending dates of the post-war baby boom, but it is most often agreed to begin in the years immediately after the war, ending more than a decade later; birth rates in the United States started to decline after 1957. As can be seen by the birth rate chart, the "birth boom" of the post–World War II period is, in a way, as much or more defined by the birth dearths that preceded and followed it, than by any exceptionally high fertility rate. Comparing birth rates from 1946 to 1964 with the rates, say, prior to World War I, the post–World War II rates are much lower, though they are high in comparison to the time periods immediately preceding and following 1946 - 1964.

← Whooping it up There and Back Again →. ↓ Jump to Comments Snapshot, World War II* I seem to stumble upon wonderful historical non-fiction rather than actively seek it out. A review will capture my interest or a book on display at the library will catch my eye and I will devour it in mere days. I haven’t read much about the history of the second World War but, what I have read has been bits and pieces, not about battles but about the ordinary people and the daily life during the war. I’m fascinated by world’s fairs; the first one I read about was the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893 in Erik Larson’s The Devil in the White City ; Bill Bryson’s. But the 1939 World’s Fair is merely the jumping off point. One interesting caveat: a time capsule was buried during the fair and a book was published which listed the contents and other information about the time capsule. This book was sent to all major libraries around the country; we own that ...

... Image:Musician in the Belgium Congo - NARA - 197078.jpg The involvement of the Belgian Congo the modern-day Democratic Republic of Congo in World War II began with the German invasion of Belgium in May 1940. Despite Belgium's surrender, the Congo remained in the conflict on the Allied side, administered by the Belgian government in exile, and provided much-needed raw materials, most notably gold and uranium, to Britain and the United States. Congolese troops of the ' Force Publique ' fought alongside British forces in the East African Campaign, and a Congolese medical unit served in Madagascar and in the Burma Campaign. The increasing demands placed on the Congolese population by the colonial authorities during the war, however, provoked strikes, riots and other forms of resistance, particularly from the indigenous Congolese. 4 The Congo was therefore administered from London by the Belgian government in exile during the war.

In the background, smoke billows|Infantrymen from the 6th Division at Tobruk, January 1941 The following is a 'list of Australian divisions in World War II', including all divisions raised within the Australian Army during World War II. A total of 15 such formations were established by the Army during the war; of these four infantry divisions served as part of the Second Australian Imperial Force, along with one armoured division. Two other armoured divisions were formed as part of the Militia, as well as eight other infantry divisions. The 2nd AIF formations provided the bulk of Australia's deployed forces, while many of the Militia formations were employed mainly for home defence and many were only partially formed before being broken up without seeing combat. Nevertheless, two Militia divisions were deployed as formed units, and elements of several others also fought overseas during the war. A total of five divisions were raised as part of the ...

Homefront industries during World War II. By Bob Cudmore Monday, July 2, 2012 American industries ran at full tilt during World War II. The Amsterdam carpet mills — Mohawk and Bigelow-Sanford — switched from making carpets to manufacturing blankets and canvas. The local mills produced more than five million blankets for the war effort. Two years after the troops came home, Mohawk Carpet Mills published a small picture book called “Smoke: The Story of a Fight.” The title linked the smoke of hearth fires and factories on the home front, “the servant of man,” with the smoke of warfare, “the master.” The cover of the book was made of canvas, produced at Mohawk.

The use of audio as a psychological weapon is well-documented, but the Nazis took things a step further by actually transforming sound waves into something that could cause lethal bodily harm. Richard Wallauschek was the mind behind the sound cannon, an array of parabolic reflectors that took the sound of a methane explosion and amplified and focused it dozens of times to create an excruciating beam of pure sound that was lethal to human beings at a range of 150 feet and caused pain and discomfort beyond that.

Moreover, after the war, those who judged former collaborators were sometimes themselves former collaborators.

When Italy declared war on the Allied Nations in 1940, the two armies began skirmishing almost immediately.

(2/81) The relationships among age, chronic conditions, and healthcare costs.

OBJECTIVE: To learn how age and chronic illness affect costs in the Veterans Affairs healthcare system. STUDY DESIGN: Veterans Affairs patients 65 years or older were identified from administrative data. We noted their healthcare utilization, cost, and diagnosis of any of 29 common chronic conditions (CCs). We examined how those 80 years or older differed from the younger patients. RESULTS: The Department of Veterans Affairs spent dollars 8.5 billion to treat 1.6 million older patients in fiscal year 2000. Age was less important than chronic illness in explaining cost differences. The oldest patients incurred a mean of dollars 1295 greater costs than the younger patients, primarily because they were more likely to have a high-cost CC. The oldest patients incurred higher total costs than the younger patients in only 14 of 29 groups defined by CC. Long-term care accounted for most of the extra cost of the oldest patients. When this cost was excluded, the oldest patients incurred only dollars 266 more cost than the younger patients. CONCLUSIONS: Growth in the population of the oldest patients will increase the number of individuals with CCs requiring long-term care. With its limited long-term care benefit, Medicare will avoid much of this financial consequence. In contrast, the financial risk of acute and long-term care gives the Department of Veterans Affairs an incentive to develop strategies to prevent CCs associated with long-term care.  (+info)

(3/81) Cutaneous melioidosis in a man who was taken as a prisoner of war by the Japanese during World War II.

Melioidosis, an infection caused by the gram-negative bacillus Burkholderia pseudomallei, is endemic to Southeast Asia and Northern Australia. Human infection is acquired through contact with contaminated water via percutaneous inoculation. Clinical manifestations range from skin and soft tissue infection to pneumonia with sepsis. We report a case of a man who was taken as a prisoner of war by the Japanese during World War II who presented with a nonhealing ulcer on his right hand 62 years after the initial exposure.  (+info)

(4/81) The mobile Army surgical hospital (MASH): a military and surgical legacy.

Operation Iraqi Freedom was perhaps the last military campaign that will ever utilize the services of a mobile Army surgical hospital (MASH). The Army has now essentially replaced the MASH with combat surgical hospitals (CSH) and forward surgical teams (FST). MASH units were designed as mobile, flexible, forward-deployed military hospitals, providing care for the wounded near the frontlines of the battlefield. These hospitals not only saved thousands of lives during war but also greatly influenced the delivery of trauma and critical care in civilian hospitals. The MASH was made popular by the television series of the 1970s, depicting the 4077th during the Korean War. Although a comical series, these television episodes provided viewers with a glimpse of life in a MASH during time of war. This article chronicles the history of the MASH from its inception during World War II to recent experiences in Operation Iraqi Freedom.  (+info)

(5/81) They starved so that others be better fed: remembering Ancel Keys and the Minnesota experiment.

During World War II, 36 conscientious objectors participated in a study of human starvation conducted by Ancel Keys and his colleagues at the University of Minnesota. The Minnesota Starvation Experiment, as it was later known, was a grueling study meant to gain insight into the physical and psychologic effects of semistarvation and the problem of refeeding civilians who had been starved during the war. During the experiment, the participants were subjected to semistarvation in which most lost >25% of their weight, and many experienced anemia, fatigue, apathy, extreme weakness, irritability, neurological deficits, and lower extremity edema. In 2003-2004, 18 of the original 36 participants were still alive and were interviewed. Many came from the Historic Peace Churches (Mennonite, Brethren, and Quaker), and all expressed strong convictions about nonviolence and wanting to make a meaningful contribution during the war. Despite ethical issues about subjecting healthy humans to starvation, the men interviewed were unanimous in saying that they would do it all over again, even after knowing the suffering that they had experienced. After the experiment ended, many of the participants went on to rebuilding war-torn Europe, working in the ministries, diplomatic careers, and other activities related to nonviolence.  (+info)

(7/81) The history of surgical teaching and the department of surgery.

Undergraduate surgical teaching in Singapore began 100 years ago, when the Medical School was founded. A significant step had been taken to enable local students to be trained in and to attain the diploma of Licentiate in Medicine and Surgery (LMS). Plans for postgraduate education were temporarily derailed when the Japanese occupied Singapore in 1942. Postgraduate surgical teaching received an official boost when the primary Australasian examinations were conducted in Singapore in 1957, providing a platform for surgical independence when the higher degree, the Master of Medicine (M Med) in Surgery, was established in 1970. Currently, the Joint Committee on Specialist Training, comprising the Division of Graduate Medical Studies, the Academy of Medicine, Singapore and the Ministry of Health, oversees the training of surgical specialists in Singapore.  (+info)

What was fashion like during World War II?


  • I am doing a research paper on fashion during World War II and need some help. Anything would be great. (well anything that relates to my question that is) :)
  • A 1944 magazine ad for Tangee lipstick read that, to a degree, " . . . we’re still the weaker sex . . . It’s up to us to appear as alluring and lovely as possible . . . Whether you’re in or out of uniform, you’ll want to be completely appealing and feminine – you’ll want delightful satin-smooth lips and all the glamour of a silky, petal-smooth complexion." Looking good was essential for stateside women during the Second World War In early 1940, marketing stressed the importance of women’s appearance and their obligation of bringing beauty into family life. The ongoing theme ‘beauty is duty’ prevailed. The war, bringing on many civilian shortages, substitution became a way of life stateside, affecting daily life. Even though, powder, eye makeup and lipsticks were considered necessary for persevering wartime spirits, some ingredients were no longer available. Eighteen line of goods affecting style were in short supply, from castor oil and zinc to acetone. One of these items, zinc oxide used in face powder was also needed in large quantities in tire plants. The soldiers needed tires for their jeeps, thereby forcing beauty suppliers to search for substitutions. The talc in face powder was imported from Italy and since we were at war with Italy, they shipped no more. The substitution for talc came from India and Manchuria which were countries thousands of miles away. Shipment was scarce. India was also a primary origin for titanium and titanium dioxide can replace zinc oxide which was also being seized by the paint and paper companies who used it for a zinc substitute. Gums in the goo for women’s hair setting lotion and henna in most hair tints and dyes, instituted in the Near East. Nail polish, nail polish removers and hair-waving lotions all consisted of substantial industrial chemical ingredients. Shipments could not be depended on and all the above were in short supply. Military and civilian provisions included the same manpower, facilities and fibers. The government wanted to conserve materials to prevent shortages and also keep morale up, without harming standing industries. The War Production Board of the federal government established a series of regulations constituting many industries including cosmetics, lingerie and apparel. Private citizens had to adjust any new clothing to the conditions with very few exceptions. Anything using vast amounts of cloth or thought unnecessary were not allowed, such as: Dolman, balloon and leg-of-mutton sleeves, aprons, overskirts, decorative trim, patch pockets and petticoats. Men’s suits consisted of two-piece suits—a jacket and pants without cuffs, although before 1942 they consisted of four pieces—two pairs of pants, a vest and a double-breasted jacket. This is where our sense of matching and mixing was established.


What is the term used when a patient falls in love with their nurse? Commonly seen in World War II.?


  • There is a medical term to describe the relationship, care, and eventually love that grows from the constant interaction found between a patient and a nurse. This term I believe evolved from the many marriages that transcended from the World War I or II era. Nurses developed a special care for their patient and the patient developed a special love for their care giver.

What are some ways to make life easier for a loved family member battling Alzheimer's Disease?


  • My grandfather is one of the most remarkable people you will ever meet. He served in World War II, has been an outstanding family man, and a greater role model. He helped me get involved in following sports. He helped raise my siblings and I when our parents worked full-time. Over the years he has been the bastion of strength and wisdom through my family's ups and downs. In 2004 he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and it has been very difficult for everyone in my family. The man I remember as being so strong and smart as a whip has so much trouble today with memories and dealing with his surroundings. He is fargone now, and is living on borrowed time. My heart is broken as a result of this illness because soon I will lose one of my best friends in this world. How do I make the rest of his days the very best for him and I despite the degeneration of his illness? To everyone who as posted an answer here- First of all, I have to say that each and everyone of you has been really classy with your answers. That is greatly appreciated. I've cried upon reading each response. The past three years have been really rough for my family and I. Again, if you ever had the chance to meet my grandfather for the first time, you would like him in an instant. He has that quality to make each and everyone in a room feel special and induce smiling. I only hope I grow up and become half the man he is. I owe everything I have ever learned about sports (especially the NHL and hockey in general) to him. cme, Blossom, 288, Aurora, (I apologize to anyone I may have missed so far...I will make mention of you in a moment)- thank you very much for the kind words each of you expressed for my family and I. amdd, sharen d, jmz, Em, yankees 10, Gevera Bert- I also would like to express my graditude for your kindness and your words. I honestly cannot pick a best answer for this question, because EVERY answer here is great and extremely helpful. I wish Yahoo could give me the option to pick 11 best answers for this question. Thank you everyone for the wonderful answers.
  • Wow Snoop, I'm terribly sorry. Watching your hero deteriorate in person is very difficult. My grandfather was stricken with cancer which metastasized and ended up in his brain. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Spend all the time you can with him!! I found the best way to deal with the enevitable was to surround myself with others going through the same thing. See below...and good luck.
