Table of Contents

Jack Matthews is a retired attorney, who lives with his wife and collections of antiques on a South Carolina coastal island. His award-winning major collection of antique toy soldiers and tinplate toys has a world-wide reputation. Long a student of World War II and its home front aspects, he has for some fifteen years assembled a collection of well over 1,000 WWII-era "military" children's toys, games, puzzles and related items, most of which are displayed herein.

Based on extensive research, this volume combines contemporary history with a visual and narrative examination of the American toy industry's adaptation to war time metal restrictions and its marketing attention to the unique patriotic mood of the times."
