Best Answer

Prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor the United States kept primarily to itself. The war was not on our soil therefore we did not want to get involved. At least not beyond the expenses of sending military and financial aide to Allied forces. After the attack ~ the lines to the recruitment offices extended round the block. Replacing the men who went off to war - the women stepped up and worked in the offices, businesses and factories. The US went from a quiet busy country to a country that was in high gear. We had the population and resources to make a difference and increase the Allied armies enough to make a difference in the war.
