With the invasion of Poland in 1939, World War II was launched. Britain and France declared war on Germany on September 3. The notorious "Blitzkrieg" followed in the spring and summer of 1940, and soon Denmark, Norway, Belgium, the Netherlands, and France fell to Nazi troops. These developments inevitably raised questions about the United States preparedness and triggered anew debates between isolationists and interventionists and compelled a re-examination of the nation’s neutrality laws. Immediately after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Maine moved “grimly into defense status”. This book details all of the different aspects of Maine’s defense mobilization from textile unions to fishermen. 408 Pgs, Paperback
