WWII has gone down in American popular memory as "the Good War" (later criticized by authors like Studs Terkel, etc.).
But who coined this term? I don't mean the concept, which refers to the idea of "just war," but the particular term.
Was it already used in wartime media and propaganda? Or was it coined later as a contrast to the Cold War, Korean War, or Vietnam?
I've searched academic articles on the subject but they take the term for granted, never addressing its origins.
