The World War II Years
Williams. As the U.S. prepared for World War II, the nation's capital became a hub of activity. Antiaircraft batteries were placed around the city, new government agencies were created, and the largest office building in the world - the Pentagon - was built in just sixteen months. Here, you'll see all of this along with civic defense organizations, VE and VJ parades, and much more. 128 pages, 225 B&W photographs, 6½"x 9¼", softcover.
