Professor, David A. Taylor
||Our featured book, "Cork Wars,"
involves three families in World War II
caught up in immigration, spies and cork.
It’s a story about how cork—from cork oak
forests around the Mediterranean—was a
big deal in the mid-20th century. When
Germany cut supplies with the Atlantic blockade,
cork companies and their workers got embroiled
in a life-and-death geopolitical struggle.
What began as a trade in bark and bottle caps
quickly spun into a global drama with sabotage
espionage, and profiteering.
— • —
Cork is the bark of trees.
It keeps regenerating after being removed.
It played a big part in WWII
and Baltimore’s part in it.
The best is grown in Portugal and Spain.
