Think about it---build the first U.S. bomber plant from scratch, one that could produce one bomber per hour, and do it in record time. All those who opposed Hitler knew the need was great and the clock was ticking.
Here is the fascinating backstory of how, in a field east of Ypsilanti, Michigan, the Willow Run bomber plant was built and became the largest airplane factory in history and the linchpin in America's arsenal of democracy. Baime presents an insightful blend of events giving equal time to the political, cultural and international forces of the time as well as to the personal dynamics of the individuals who rose to meet the formidable challenge.
A very interesting, informative book that at times is a real page-turner!
