Fort Devens is the first book to trace the military activity in this area. Throughout the twentieth century, troops were trained and deployed from Fort Devens for every major conflict the United States was involved in. During World War II, Fort Devens inducted more than six hundred thousand men into the army from the New England area. The list of individuals who have served here included Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Bill Mauldin, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell, and Senator Edward M. Kennedy. Even NASA can trace its birth to Fort Devens by way of Dr. Robert Goddard's liquid-fueled rocket experiments.

I received this book as a birthday present from my son. After reading it, I found myself picking it up almost daily and fanning through the images. What a wonderful addition to my treasure chest of memories.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
