Between April 1942 and April 1944, more than one million men in seven armored divisions and thirteen infantry divisions trained for desert warfare at camps in an area 350x250 miles extending west to Indio, east to Yuma, Arizona, and north to Boulder City, Nevada. Many battles of World War II were won on these desert lands during those maneuvers.
