"In this impressively researched exploration, esteemed ethnobotanist Sumner takes a scholarly yet totally accessible approach to the myriad ways plant materials were critical to both Allied and Axis war efforts. With balanced attention to domestic sacrifices and ingenuity, Sumner's astonishing discoveries make this a fascinating read for botany buffs and those steeped in military history."  --Booklist

"A unique blend of botanical and military history...Plants Go to War is an original and meticulous study that is as informed and informative as it is accessibly organized and reader-friendly in presentation."
