Florida During World War II

Few states were as directly affected by the war as Florida. Over a quarter of a million Floridians volunteered or were drafted into the military. Dozens of military bases were established or expanded in the state.

Agriculture was Florida's primary economic contribution to the war effort. The war also spurred Florida's economic development and led to a post war population surge.
