    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.

    Story
    Would you listen to Freedom's Forge again? Why?

    Yes, and I will.
    I want to know history and I want to know it well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Capitalism triumphed evil!
    The ingenuity of Americans, from engineers to high school drop outs was inspiring.


    Which character – as performed by John McDonough – was your favorite?

    Knudsen.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Capitalism won the war.
    Not the Socialist FDR and not the Government and their central planners.
    If the government had tried to build the war machine, we would have been defeated!!!!
