Prairie Forge: the Extraordinary Story of the Nebraska Scrap Metal Drive of World War II
by James J. Kimble

When Henry Doorly initially developed a plan to urge citizens to donate scrap metal to help with arms production, he had no idea that his plan would expand from Omaha to the entire state and then be used as a model for a national scrap drive. Prairie Forge draws readers into good discussions about the entire state’s participation in the challenge to provide scrap metal. The book covers every county’s participation in the Nebraska Plan, and how it fit into the larger effort on a national level. Check out this book from our catalog.
