Little Minnesota in World War II

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our book, Little Minnesota in World War II, the stories of 140 men who died from our tiniest towns.  Many men in the book grew up in northwestern Minnesota and were highly sought by the military for their work ethic, ability to fix anything and woods and gun skills.  The men are all from Little Minnesota:  100 Towns Around 100 which includes Halma, St. Vincent, Donaldson, Holt, Viking, Strathcona and Goodridge.
