The War Toolbox

Resources for teachers, librarians, and other groups to create The War related programs.

THE WAR, a seven-part series directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, premiered on PBS September 23, 2007. THE WAR tells the story of the Second World War through personal accounts of men and women from four American towns, one of them Sacramento, California. Libraries throughout California will host community programs, encourage further reading and discussion, and facilitate the sharing of oral histories.
