Wednesday, August 18, 2021
What did Henry Doorly, Cornhusker football, and the patriotic spirit of Nebraskans have to do with the Allied victory in World War II? Find out in this talk from James J. Kimble, who will go behind the scenes of his research for "Prairie Forge," the 2021 One Book One Nebraska title. You’ll step back into the dramatic home front in 1942, witness the scrap metal disaster that nearly derailed the Allied war effort, and see for yourself just why Nebraska was so central to winning the greatest war in history.
