How America got ready for war in the 1940s

These pictures show the final preparations ahead of the deployment of U.S. soldiers during World War II, taken by one photographer sent across the country to make sure the image of a strong and powerful army was broadcast to American homes.

Alfred T. Palmer was the official head photographer for the Office of War Information, set up by President Roosevelt in the wake of the attack on Pearl Harbor in December, 1941.

He had the responsibility of ensuring that the images of the war effort that ended up in the newspapers would inject courage and national pride in the public.
