Reminisce Magazine Releases 'The 1940s,' an Exclusive 3-DVD Collection of Video Memories of America's Heroic Generation

READERS DIGEST

The editors of Reminisce magazine have released a three-set DVD tribute to the 1940s, a time of patriotism and heroism lauded in books and TV documentaries as one of America's greatest. "The 1940s" is a unique multimedia time capsule with exclusive video clips, photos and storytelling in the words of the people who were there. The DVD set was produced by the editors of Reminisce and The Memory Lane Company.

Editors of "The 1940s" combed through mountains of stories and thousands of feet of home movies from the 1940s submitted by Reminisce readers. The resulting 3-disk set tells a remarkable story through the words and images of everyday people, woven together into an entertaining portrait of America during a time of historic transformation. Topics include Front Lines, At Ease, Home Front, What We Wore, At Work, At Play, In Love, Driving, Shopping and At Home.

Photo: Pauline Mauck, pictured on the cover of "The 1940s" DVD set from Reminisce magazine, was a "Rosie the Riveter" who worked in a Republic Aviation P-47 plant in Evansville, Iowa during WWII. She posed on the propeller of one of the planes coming out of the plant and it became an iconic image during the war. Her husband, Leonard Mauck, fought in WWII. Their story is among hundreds of heart-warming personal recollections presented in "The 1940s" DVD set. (Reader's Digest Association)


Reminisce magazine, a part of the Home & Garden division of Reader's Digest Association, publishes the stories, photos and memories of its more than 1.5 million subscribers every month, and according to the publishers, "Provides a unique blend of nostalgia and celebration of what is great about America."

"The 1940s" is the first in what is expected to be a series of history and nostalgia DVD collections produced by Reminisce and Memory Lane. |GlobalGiants.com|
