Florida and World War II
On the eve of Pearl Harbor, Florida was the smallest state in the South. Today, Florida is a Sunbelt megastate, and World War II was the linchpin. The war galvanized Floridians, resulting in the influx of two million servicemen. WWII also ignited a modern civil rights movement, new roles for women, and the dawn of the Florida Dream.
