When Milwaukee Went to War brings to life the incredible stories behind the many men and women-from all walks of life-who stepped up and proudly worked toward a common goal. Their hard work and sacrifices, along with the investment and innovation by Milwaukee industry led to Victory.”Every combat division, every naval task force, every squadron of fighting planes is dependent for its equipment and ammunition and fuel and food . . . on the American people in civilian clothes in the offices and in the factories and on the farms at home.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1943 Milwaukee was one of the principal industrial centers of the United States that produced munitions for the war effort. Area companies also produced goods for the troops engaged in the war. The factory workers who helped build the equipment and supplies were a central part of the war effort. They can be credited for helping to achieve victory in Europe and victory over Japan. This book is issued in commemoration of their work and sacrifices.
