Details conditions in Alabama and the role of its citizens in a time of military crisis unknown since the Civil War.

Alabama and its people played a conspicuous role in World War II. Not only were thousands of servicemen trained at military facilities in the state—at Fort McClellan, Camp Rucker, Camp Sibert, Maxwell Air Field, and Tuskegee Army Air Field—but Axis prisoners of war were interned in camps on Alabama soil, most notably at Aliceville and Opelika. More than 45,000 Alabama citizens were killed in combat or died as POWs, some came home injured, and many labored in war factories at home.

Allen Cronenberg is Associate Professor of History and Director of the Center for the Arts and Humanities at Auburn University.


“A clearly written study based on solid research. . . . Cronenberg has adroitly balanced developments in the state with the larger issues of the national effort. Highly recommended.”
