A manual for air raid wardens, 1942
Manual for Air Raid Wardens, State of Wisconsin
The development and use of strategic bombing in the 20th century, particularly during the Second World War, led to new forms of civilian defense. Air raid drills and blackouts became common activities. In towns across the United States, Air Raid Wardens assumed leadership positions in educating their neighbors on drill procedures. The Wisconsin Council of Defense produced these guides to instruct Wardens on their duties and responsibilities.
