This book is the first detailed look at the most important event in National Guard history--the complete mobilization of the Guard during World War II. After 1933, members of the Guard were not only soldiers of the state but of the nation as well. The compromises, conflicts, emotions, and legal precedents involved in the 1940-41 mobilization were to affect the National Guard and national defense strategy for many years to come. Sligh's study demonstrates the importance of the political situation between the Guard and the Army and its consequences for later defense policy and legislation.
