Five months after Pearl Harbor the U.S. military had yet to launch a single campaign against the Germans or Japanese forces; but within that same time frame New York City Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia had successfully organized his citizenry into a dozen assorted Civil Defense cohorts just in case his town was subjected to enemy air-raids. This photo-essay is about the early months of 1942, when New Yorkers rolled up their sleeves and locked arms for the good of their city and their country:

"Seven neighbors, seven Americans who hardly knew each other were the beginning of Post 11, Sector B, in Manhattan's first zone of civillian Defense. Straddling a dining room chair, Senior Post Warden Edward Georges read instructions about bombs, siren signals, organization. A young advertising man, a government worker, the janitor of the building, two older volunteers and a secretary were the first to join."
