Yuma, Arizona, USA – WEBWIRE

The book exalts the storied history of the Yuma Proving Ground and honors its military and civilian builders.

So few books have been written about proving grounds or military installations. “50 Years at Yuma: A History of Military Testing and Civilian Bureaucracy” (RoseDog Books) by J. L. Wymer is just one of them.
The author, who worked at the YPG for five decades, wrote the book to “recognize the extraordinary contributions of the people who built the U.S. Army, Yuma Proving Ground Arizona (YPG) from an undeveloped desert area in the early 1950s with a few thousand hours of workload to its current status as a premier military testing facility accomplishing millions of hours of direct labor testing of military material.”
“50 Years at Yuma” provides readers with a personal look at the U.S. Army and its test operations from the 1950s to the 21st century in YPG. The author briefs readers on the founding history of the proving ground before he proceeds to tell his and other people’s – both military and civilian – stories. He details not only the ins and outs of work and life at YPG but also narrates how military testing has evolved through the years at the proving ground.
The book contains not only anecdotes but also photographs, which help to enrich the readers’ experience as they travel back in time and increase their interest in the subject of military testing.
Order J. L. Wymer’s “50 Years at Yuma: A History of Military Testing and Civilian Bureaucracy” today through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
