BLUE Howard, Words at War : World War II Era Radio Drama and The Postwar Broadcasting Industry Blacklist, Lanham, Scarecrow Press, 2002.

Words at War explores popular radio entertainment in the context of larger political events in the 1940s. Howard Blue shows that one cannot underestimate the importance of this medium in framing the world situation for Americans sitting by their radios each night. Blue makes a convincing case that radio dramas can be seen as historical texts with meaning beyond momentary escapism during World War II. Although he adds many new details, he primarily confirms existing literature on the subject. As was done with the wartime motion picture industry, the Office of War Information brought official messages to the public via a medium the government could not control.
