Having gotten interested in Victory Gardens, I found this research into WWII food politics full of new ideas. It mostly focused on food rationing, which is interesting though I didn't have the time to go into it in much depth, and it drew out the gendered propaganda and the class differences in how the domestic "front" was approached.
