        Total War, Full Program Description

        This text discusses the content of the WGBH production People's Century: "Total War." Total War refers to the strategy that many countries employed in World War II of engaging and mobilizing all available populations and resources. This introduction touches upon the destruction of Plymouth, London, Hamburg and Tokyo by bombings and how civilians were thrust into the war effort. Eyewitness quotes are used to illustrate the violence, agony, and confusion that people felt as their cities were attacked.
