"Sweetheart and Mother military pillow covers provide a point of departure for the study of World War I and World War II and the years of Civilian Conservation Corps camps of the twentieth century.... These often charming military collectibles provide an important glimpse into the past. Another fascinating part of some of the pillow covers is their poetry...."-- Back cover, Sweetheart & mother pillows, 1917-1945 by Patricia Cummings (Atglen PA : Schiffer Pub., 2011).
