As noted in chapter 16, “by certain evidence, it was the most popular war that the United States had ever fought.” 18 million people served in the armed forces, 10 million over seas 25 million workers gave their pay checks for the war bonds, which was considered as manufactured support

According to Howard Zinn, Putting aside the wild accusations against Roosevelt (that he knew about Pearl Harbor and didn't tell, or that he deliberately provoked the Pearl Harbor raid—these are without evidence)… September and October 1941, he misstated the facts in two incidents involving German submarines and American destroyers. Franklin Roosevelt deceived the Americans during the period before Pearl Harbor (Zinn pg. 411)
