    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.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a very interesting true account of how America dominated the world because of its leaders and the power of free reign industrial development and production.

    He would go to Hell.... At the Iron Mountain Home for Boys, there was nothing but time. Time to burn and time to kill, time for two young orphans to learn that life isn’t won without a fight. Julian survives only because his older brother, Michael, is fearless and fiercely protective. When tensions boil over and a boy is brutally killed, there is only one sacrifice left for Michael to make: He flees the orphanage and takes the blame with him.

    Would you listen to Iron House again? Why?

    Very well written book. You could tell the writer had authentic knowledge of the fictional settings. I also liked the multiple plots that tie in to one another. If John Hart is reading this, Your Friend Clint Robins, referred me to the book and it far exceeded expectations.
