    I am writing a book about WWII. I want to include a passage about the response of businesses to the issues they dealt with regards to the war. I saw Book of Memories mentioned in the book Faribault Woolen Mill by Lisa Simons. I am interested in whichever of the two books noted above has a more thorough discussion about the 1940’s. Thanks for your assistance.
