Description

Craig. This heavily illustrated book examines the illustrious history of Massachusetts' Fort Devens, from the 1600s when the area was first garrisoned by British troops through the War Department's construction of the camp in 1915 (using the largest labor force in history), World Wars I and II, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and beyond.



You'll learn of the men who served there, including Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Bill Mauldin, Colin Powell and Senator Edward Kennedy; of NASA's affiliation with the base via Dr. Robert Goddard's liquid-fueled rocket experiments; and more. 128 pages, approximately 200 B&W photographs, 6½"x 9¼", softcover.
