The U.S. entered World War II in 1941 after the Japanese attacked the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

As with World War I, men between 18 and 45 were drafted into the military. This photograph shows drafted military inductees boarding a bus in Norway, Maine. Many eventually fought overseas.
