Wilderness to Warfront : The Adirondacks and World War II
Label:
The war increased demand for materials like gasoline, rubber, metals, food, and paper. Consumer goods were rationed to ensure that the armed forces were well supplied and that everyone at home received their fair share. Every member of a household was issued a ration book with points redeemable for food and other goods. Consumers still had to pay for their purchases, but were required to surrender the required points as well.
