Picking up where Chatham in the Jazz Age left off, this exciting new book by Debra Lawless explores the history of Chatham, from the beginning of the Second World War to the end of the 1960s. Meet a brave group of people who rationed their food and mourned the loss of their sons, including Robert Scott Brown, the only soldier from Cape Cod killed at Pearl Harbor. As the military took over the Chatham Light and local radio station WCC, wartime security became so tight that Chatham's fishermen were photographed and fingerprinted. Experience the transition into the 1950s, when even as tourism boomed, Cape residents feared polio and called for zoning to ban hot dog stands. Finally, hang out with hippies as Chatham's sons were sent to another war, in Vietnam, and the nation geared up to begin its war on drugs.
