The Canteen: Sacrifice and Community During World War II by Eric Groce gives a wonderful overview of the generosity shown to soldiers by the residents of North Platte, Nebraska as they were on their way to fight overseas during World War II.  The Canteen welcomed soldiers during their 10 minute break on the train by serving homemade goodies and providing music, magazines and a friendly welcome.  During the 5 years it operated 55,000 volunteers served over 5,000 soldiers a day.  This slim volume is full of photographs and primary documents.
