Overview


No event so changed and reshaped East Tennessee and the city of Knoxville as did World War II. From the hills and hollows of the Smoky Mountains to the banks of the Tennessee River, men and women from all walks of life volunteered or were called into service to assist with the nationwide war effort. As with the First World War, entirely new industries sprang to life in Knoxville, and the old ones were changed forever by the new demands for equipment, sailors, soldiers, and supplies. It was a tumultuous time of upheaval as people were removed from family homes in the Smoky Mountains and forced to move to Knoxville to earn a living. This is a collection of photographs gathered from the families of the men and women who served in World War II as both civilians and soldiers.

    Fascinating book!

    This is an AWESOME book on World War II! I bought one for my dad and went back for another one for myself. The photographs were fascinating and the book flowed well from the homefront to the battlefield. Its rare to see the citizen side of the war balanced with the soldiers.

    Great historical photographs!

    What I like about this book more than anything was the straightforward way the author portrayed the city of Knoxville and Tennessee in this book. I attended college at UT-Knoxville and loved this author's first book on the city in this series. 'Knoxville in World War II' is a great companion to it and has stunning photographs of World War II on both Asian and European fronts.
