The Federal Government changed the face of northern Arizona during World War II with the construction of the U.S. Army ordnance depot at Bellemont, ten miles west of Flagstaff. As thousands of construction workers poured in from nearby Indian reservations and as far away as the Midwest and South, prosperity was accompanied by racism, emerging union activity, juvenile delinquency, and women entering the workforce in unprecedented numbers. In telling the story of those years, John Westerlund shows that the construction and maintenance of the facility was far more than a military matter. He vividly portrays not only that city's transitional years but also the impact of military expansion on economic and community development in the American West. Book jacket.
