Summary:

New York Times best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize finalist Arthur Herman pens this fascinating look at how two businessmen turned the U.S. into a military powerhouse during World War II. In 1940, FDR asked General Motors CEO William Knudsen to oversee the production of guns, tanks, and planes needed for the war. Meanwhile, industrialist Henry J. Kaiser presided over the building of 'Liberty ships'-vessels that came to symbolize America's great wartime output.

    This was an outstanding read! Packed with great information from the inside - personalties, thought processes, egos, and a disheartening episode. The clear star of the book was Henry Knudsen - it's very apparent the author holds a lot of respect for him, but it's not overdone. This is a great read on how we won the war - before the military even got started! The narration was excellent.
