Reading Guide and Questions for Gerstle, Chapter 5, “Good War, Race War,  1941-1945” Once again, remember that you always want to think about Gerstle’s chapters as evidence for the  argument he put forward in the Introduction.  That is, how, in the case of Chapter 5, is Gerstle  attempting to prove his argument to you?  What evidence and historical events does he use to  support the book’s overall argument?   These questions are designed to help you think about how the argument and these terms play out  in this chapter: 1. Why does Gerstle title the chapter “Good War, Race War”?  How does this help to  discern how his argument will be developed in the chapter? 2. Note that Gerstle often puts “Good War” in quotes.  Why does he do this? 3. Why was the civic nation greatly expanded during World War II?  Why was this different  than previous wars? 4.
