Camp Adair: The Story of a World War II Cantonment
by John H Baker $1

This book is about Camp Adair and the men who trained and served there while they prepared themselves for combat. It is a detailed and lovingly researched history of Camp Adair. Adair was used to train soldiers from 1942-44 and ranked as Oregon’s second-largest town during those years. This book is not only about one site or one camp, whose sole purpose was to provide training for war, but it is the story of all the camps and all the training programs and the surrounding communities that took these young Americans to their hearts and houses and let them know all America was home.
Camp Adair: The Story of a World War II Cantonment, John H Baker
