This book touches on the social, economic, and governmental changes that occurred during the war--the changes that took place, all over the country but were intensified in the Hampton Roads and Virginia Peninsula area. The hectic experiences of this vital center in adjusting to difficult conditions should help other defense-affected regions of the country.

Originally published in 1951.
