초록:

Presented in this book through pictures is the history of Chicopee. A small city which was trying to emerge in 1935 from a crippling depression and economic collapse, but went on to have a great impact on materials produced for the war despite two large natural disasters to the area in 1936 and 1938. As a result of those disasters, the U.S. Congress passed the Wilcox Act, and in 1939, Secretary of War Harry W. Woodring announced that the tobacco plains of Chicopee had been selected as the site for the Northeast's Army Air Corps base. The super base, named Westover Field, was the largest air base in the country by 1942. During World War II, Chicopee would be one of four cities in Massachusetts to produce over a billion dollars worth of war materials, and following the war, the city grew and prospered at a record pace.
