  • Homefront Soldiers: Evansville and the Tri-State during WWII


Evansville and the Tri-State were greatly impacted by the WWII US Army training camps. Entire forests were felled to provide building lumber, area quarries were pledged to provide crushed stone for roads, concrete foundations, floor slabs, airport runways and training facilities. While the entire nation was ramping up for war during the crucial building year of 1942, Evansville had a lion’s share of building and construction. Crews worked every day, rain or shine, to complete the facilities needed at Camps Breckenridge and Campbell, George and Sturgis Army Air Fields so that over 70,000 service men and staff had a place to train and sleep.

This 11 x 8.5 inch, coffee-table style book features historical photos and stories that take the reader through how the Tri-State was impacted during these years. You will see how the needed infrastructure was created, how local businesses were impacted and how the community came together.

Don’t miss this opportunity to own a piece of Tri-State history. You may also choose between a standard printed cover or a genuine bonded leather cover and/or to have your book personalized with a name stamping. Local pick up will also be available. Order your Copy Today!

He had four uncles and two cousins who were US Navy and Army Air Force servicemen in the Pacific Theatre in the war years. Harold’s grandfather Wells was one of the first carpenters hired for Camp Breckenridge construction. His family’s first hand experience fueled his interest in WWII. After retiring from his engineering position at Apex Engineering of Mount Vernon, IN and Calvert City, KY in 1998, Harold has devoted his time to researching and writing about the Tri-State during WWII. This is Harold’s third book on the subject.
