This intimately researched work tells the story of the thousand-plus Depression-era civilian contractors who came to Wake Island, a remote Pacific atoll, in 1941 to build an air station for the U.S. Navy. Author Gilbert charts the contractors hard-won progress as they scramble to build the naval base as well as runways for the U.S. Army Air Corpss B-17 Flying Fortresses while war clouds gather over the Pacific.
