The Wings of Change: The Army Air Force Experience in Texas During World War II, by Thomas E. Alexander . And that's when Texas began to change

The Wings of Change: The Army Air Force Experience in Texas During World War II, by Thomas E. Alexander; foreword by Gen. Billy J. Boles, USAF (Re. (2003). President Franklin D. Roosevelt. called for building more than fifty thousand new military aircraft and training more than thirty thousand pilots to fly them. And that's when Texas began to change. In the next few years, sixty-five Army airfields would be located in Texas, more than in any other state. Lago Vista Public Library. Geo-Texas: A Guide to the Earth Sciences, by Eric R. Swanson (1995).

On the brink of World War II, Texas was still largely a rural state, a closed society. Few chose to leave, and even fewer outsiders found any reason to enter. A frontier morality dictated adherence to strict moral guidelines regarding temperance, frugality, tolerance, fidelity, and moderation. Cultural activities and educational opportunities were limited.The state’s economic situation was dire as a result of the Great Depression and persistent drought. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, needing to put unemployed men back to work and at the same time begin preparing for a looming war, called for building more than fifty thousand new military aircraft and training more than thirty thousand pilots to fly them.And that’s when Texas began to change. In the next few years, sixty-five army airfields would be located in Texas, more than in any other state. Some citizens may have been troubled initially at the prospect of uniformed strangers trooping down their streets, perhaps up to all manner of nefarious deeds. Those concerns, however, were all but obscured by the reality of federal dollars flowing into citizens’ pockets long empty and civic coffers all but bone dry.After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, a surging spirit of patriotism universally overcame any shreds of lingering doubt about the need not only to have the bases close by but to welcome military personnel to the community with open arms.The air force had come to Texas in a big way, and changes, as well as the wings of thousands of airplanes, were in the air, from Dalhart to Laredo and from El Paso to San Antonio.

A must for WWII aviation buffs, particularly Texans.

This is the second book I purchased from this author -- this gentlemen does not have a clue how to write a respectable aviation history.

For the aviation historian, this book (as well as his other book on Pyote AAF) are useless. No information on the B-17's, no information on the training of the crews.

It is almost as if this author was afraid to go out a search for respectable photographs of the B-17 that flew from many of the fields (or any other aircraft that flew from Texas)

Save your money and run away from anything this author has published or is thinking of publishing

My dad's bombardment unit was the fist to return from the south pacific to Pyote Airfield in Texas. I loved reading about the experiences of those who made it home.
