Title We Bought a WWII Bomber


Sandra Warren
Date 2015
Publisher Arlie Press
Where to Buy available in paperback from Amazon
Comments /


This is a short (125 pages) and easy to read book that shows the reader one element of the WWII Home Front, in particular what a few dedicated students and ultimately a single community can do when they put their mind to it.  They sell war bonds and thus raise $ to build not one but several WWII aircraft. 

Competition among communities to raise money, collect salvage, do more with less, and similar goals was quite common during WWII.  The book is focused on the Buy a Bomber Program on which little has been written. 

A worthwhile read.
