About this title
Dutch Island is an 81-acre island situated at the
southern end of the West Passage to Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island. It served an important role in our
country’s military history, from its acquisition by the United States Army in 1864 until its closing by the military in 1947. This volume is the first pictorial history illustrating the military development and facilities of Fort Greble on Dutch Island, spanning the period from the Civil War to World War II. Readers will step back in time and wander through the early earthworks and different incarnations of Fort Greble, stroll along the
pristine parade ground before it was covered in briar
and bramble, gaze upon the huge coastal artillery guns pointing toward the sea, and watch uniformed soldiers performing their duties on this fortified island.
Walter K. Schroder, author of Defenses of Narragansett Bay, has compiled an amazing collection of photographs, many from the official federal archives, that detail and examine a memorable chapter in our country’s military past. Dutch Island and Fort Greble is a wonderful visual journey through the past that will delight and educate both the avid historian and the casual observer.
