Double Play

"Everything was rationed: gasoline, tires, bacon, butter. We used margerine instead. It came lard white with a dye pack included."

"Every week at the movies we watched the newsreels which tended to treat the war as an unswerving march by our side toward victory in Europe and the Pacific. No one doubted. There would be no conditions. We required unconditional surrender. Remember Pearl Harbor as we march against the foe...Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition, praise the Lord we aint' a goin' fishing...We're comin' in on a wing and a prayer."

Quotes from: Double Play by Robert B. Walker
