About this title

Synopsis:

For this second volume of his critically acclaimed and award-winning study of World War II airfields, the author has extensively researched eleven more of the sixty-five bases that were located in Texas. Included are chapters on military air installations near Pampa, Hondo, Del Rio, Midland, Marfa, El Paso, Fort Worth, Lubbock, Austin, Big Spring, and Houston. The book provides both a compelling and fascinating view of life on the Texas home front during the war, and serves as a much needed reference guide to the once mighty airfields that have been for the most part abandoned and forgotten. It also serves as a tribute to the thousands of men and women in uniform who came to the Lone Star State to learn the skills of war nearly sixty years ago.
