Wisconsin’s trees heard “Timber!” during World War II, as the forestproducts industry of the Badger State played a key role in the Allied aerialcampaign. It was Wisconsin that provided the material for the De HavillandMosquito, known as the “Timber Terror,” while the CG-4A battle-ready gliders,cloaked in stealthy silence, carried the 82nd and 101stAirborne into fierce fighting throughout Europe and the Pacific. Sara WitterConnor follows a forgotten thread of the American war effort, celebrating thefactory workers, lumberjacks, pilots and innovative thinkers of the U.S. ForestProducts Laboratory who helped win a world war with paper, wood and glue.
