Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

This wartime story of man and the food necessary for his survival is told by two men - a commentator and an interjector. The many-faceted problem of ensuring adequate production of essential foods, and a fair and even distribution of foods throughout the world, is challengingly presented.
