"When Books Went to War"

New from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt: When Books Went to War: The Stories that Helped Us Win World War II by Molly Guptill Manning.

About the book, from the publisher:

While the Nazis were burning hundreds of millions of books across Europe, America printed and shipped 140 million books to its troops. The story of how the books were received, how they connected soldiers with authors, and how an army of librarians and publishers lifted spirits and built a new democratic audience of readers is as inspiring today as it was then.
