Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection explores the attitudes of different generations of Americans toward war. Questions pertained to respondents' views of the Cold War, World Wars I and II, the Vietnam War, and the Persian Gulf War. Respondents were also asked for their opinions of Saddam Hussein and Adolf Hitler, and for their views regarding President George Bush's declaration that force was necessary to make Iraq withdraw completely from Kuwait. A portion of the interviews were conducted before the Persian Gulf War (up to and including January 15), some were conducted during the War (January 17 and later), and others the day the bombing started (January 16). Questions were also asked about the respondent's educational background, month and year of birth, race or ethnic origin, and sex.
