World War II & the Great Lakes book


During World War II, the people of the Great Lakes played an essential part in the war effort.  This book contains their stories, from the auto workers in Detroit to the miners in the Upper Peninsula; it’s the story of the true backbone of the war effort, and the price that was paid to win that war.
