WWII brought growth to Fort Benning with more soldier's training there, which also brought growth for Phenix City's nightclubs, pawn shops and houses of prostitution.

What made Phenix City different was the endorsement of law enforcement for law-breakers and the infiltration of racketeers into nearly every aspect of Phenix City government. These racketeers had their sights set on power and control greater than the Russell County line.
