Very enjoyable. Kept my attention. Kept me alert and laughing all the way through. Fun listen.

I enjoy listening to mysteries while working at home. This one was a little too strange and definitely too long. It would have been much better is it was 6 hours shorter. Be warned. Only a so so mystery.
I enjoyed the book but the title was very misleading. The book should be renamed Ford Motor Company in WWII. There was very little about any other Company switching from civilian production to war production or the changes this brought. This is the story of Edsel and Henry Ford II developing the Willow Run plant to build B-24 bombers and eventually achieving their goal of producing a bomber a day. This is not the story of how American industry converted to build the tanks, planes and bombs that won the war. Nor is the story about the great migration of people from rural areas to large urban areas to work in the war factories and the changes this brought.
too many characters - too confusing - couldn't keep up with what was going on
This is a must read if you are interested in American history. I am 65 and I have read hundreds of books on WWII. None told the story as well as this book. It is hard to imagine the US in 1939 and to compare the world my parents grew up in and the world I grew up in the 1950's. It has the best analysis of our entry into the war and a better explanation of why the US took some actions or did not take others than any I have every read. Most history book concentrate on what happened. This explains why it happened and the great changes that occurred in the US in the 1940's. If you want to understand things in 2014 you should read or listen to this book.
