What Did Books Do in the U.S. Military During World War II?

Here’s the anti-paywall link to my review of the book When Books Went to War.

It’s a USA-centric book. That probably explains why it’s only available in the United States (since I included it in an international giveaway, I looked into the option of buying books in the winner’s country… ha ha, too few copies of this book exist outside the USA for that to work). For those of you who aren’t part of U.S. society, I don’t know whether that’s a plus or minus.

Though I didn’t time this for Memorial Day, it’s a fitting piece for Memorial Day weekend.

How people print, distribute, and read books during an event as extreme as a world war reveals much about books in any context.

Again, here’s an anti-paywall link.
