Overview
"Radar won the war, the bomb ended it." Small Town, Big Secrets gives us a look at one of America's most important military bases during World War II--the top secret Boca Raton Army Air Field. On this base, troops learned how to install, maintain and operate the country's most important war-worth device--airborne radar. Small Town, Big Secrets retraces for the first time the development of the base, its impact on Boca Raton, the life of base soldiers and the development and impact of airborne radar in the war. Engrossing and thoroughly researched, this poignant history has gone untold until now. The story of the Boca Raton Army Air Field is at once a story of sacrifice and service by America's young servicemen and women, and a testament to the effort of a small community during World War II.
