This forgotten thread of the American war effort is captured by Ms Connor as she marks the contribution of Wisconsin firms including the Roddis Plywood Corporation and Commonwealth Plywood, who supplied plywood for the construction of the British-design DeHavilland DH-98 Mosquito fighter.

The Mosquito, the fastest piston-engine aircraft, was believed by many to be the most versatile combat aircraft of WWII.

A substantial number of the approximately 8,000 Mosquitos manufactured were built by teams in Canada.
