ABSTRACT
A part of The Book of Texas Days, 1984, which chronicles the history of Texas, is presented. It deals with the effect of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941 and the impact of Texas on the U.S. war effort. Texas became a prime training ground for the young men who would fly the planes, man the ships, and slug it out on the ground. As the struggle went on, Texas was to become a prime site for prisoner-of-war camps. At least 22,000 Texas men who went away to fight the war died in it.
