Robert Earnest Miller: World War II Cincinnati

World War II Cincinnati by Robert Earnest Miller

World War II transformed Cincinnati from a relatively important but parochial midwestern city into a teeming bastion of military might.

While thousands served in the nation's armed forces, others contributed to rationing programs, salvage drives, blackouts and war bond rallies. Scores of community-based programs blossomed as Cincinnatians on the home front threw themselves wholeheartedly into the "total war" that Washington believed necessary for victory.

After answering the call to treat domestic duty as seriously as any battleground assignment, the Queen City emerged from the war as utterly changed as the nation itself. Author Robert Miller brings to life this dramatic, patriotic period in Cincinnati's history with his book World War II Cincinnati: From the Front Lines to the Home Front.
