Abstract
During World War II, the United States fought a full scale war with an enormous industrial base. In addition to metals traditionally associated with the military like iron, nickel, copper and tin, the rapid pace of technology elevated the importance of other metals that had not seen much or any use in previous wars. These included aluminum and uranium. This talk will consist of an overview of the procurement and use of these strategic metals by Allied forces during the war.
