Author Visit & Book Talk - Judith Sumner

Join Judith Sumner as she talks about the history and use of plants during World War II.

As the first botanical history of World War II, Plants Go to War examines military history from the perspective of plant science. From victory gardens to drugs, timber, rubber, and fibers, plants supplied materials with key roles in victory. Vegetables provided the wartime diet both in North America and Europe, where vitamin-rich carrots, cabbages, and potatoes nourished millions. In the Pacific, survival manuals detailed edible plants on Pacific islands.
