    About The Book

    When America entered World War II in 1941, we faced an enemy that had banned and burned over 100 million books and caused fearful citizens to hide or destroy many more. Outraged librarians launched a campaign to send free books to American troops and聽gathered 20 million hardcover donations. In 1943, the War Department and the publishing industry stepped in with an extraordinary program:聽120 million small, lightweight paperbacks, for troops to carry in their pockets and their rucksacks, in every theater of war.

    Comprising 1,200 different titles of every imaginable type, these paperbacks were beloved by the troops and are still fondly remembered today. Soldiers read them while waiting to land at Normandy; in hellish trenches in the midst of battles in the Pacific; in field hospitals; and on long bombing flights.聽They wrote to the authors, many of whom responded to every letter.聽They helped rescue The Great Gatsby from obscurity.聽They made Betty Smith, author of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, into a national icon. When Books Went to War is an inspiring story for history buffs and book lovers alike.
