Of War and Men
University of Chicago Press

This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the effects and after effects of World War II on fatherhood in the U.S. It offers suggestions on how best one can understand the history culture and conduct of fatherhood in America. This chapter examines how the war further reified lore and law and led to the creation of more sharply delineated gender and sexual boundaries and evaluates how the brutality of combat affected the men who lived through it.

Keywords:   fatherhood, World War II, U.S., gender boundaries, sexual boundaries, brutality of combat
