Description

Thomas, Jr. Through archival photographs and vintage postcards, this volume explores Fort Benning - one of the largest infantry bases in the world, with more than 180,000 acres - from the U.S. Army base's establishment outside Columbus, Georgia, in 1918; through the creation of the Infantry School of Arms, where many future leaders - such as Bradley, Eisenhower, Marshall and Patton - trained; to the late 1970s.



You'll view the early wooden encampment, the permanent buildup from the late 1920s through the early 1940s, the Infantry School, Doughboy Stadium, Gowdy and Lawson Fields, the jump towers, the commandant's home on the former Bussey plantation, military reviews, presidential visits, and much more. 128 pages, approximately 200 B&W photographs, 6½"x 9¼", softcover.
