  • More About This Book
From the Great Depression to the economic boom of the postwar years, Hall County had much in common with the rest of the country during World War II while still experiencing the war in its own way. A devastating tornado, a naval air station, growth in textile and agricultural industries, and changes in how citizens viewed the world meant that Hall County emerged from the war with a unique perspective on the possibilities for its future. Using original images of historic places and artifacts, this book tells the story of Hall County and its people during the years leading up to, during, and immediately after World War II—a time that changed the county forever and assured its central role in the development of northeast Georgia.
