The Arsenal of Democracy tells the incredible story of how Detroit answered the call, centering on Henry Ford and his tortured son Edsel, who, when asked if they could deliver 50,000 airplanes, made an outrageous claim: Ford Motor Company would erect a plant that could yield a “bomber an hour”. Critics scoffed: Ford didn’t make planes; they made simple, affordable cars. But bucking his father’s resistance, Edsel charged ahead.

This book tells of American resolve and Ingenuity in the desperate wake of the Great Depression and onset of WWII to mobilize hundreds of thousands of men, women, minorities and disabled people to design and produce the weapons and machinery of war, leading to the defeat of Hitler's Nazi regime and the Axis powers.

For me, the highlight and common thread woven through this story was the very real and common family struggles of Henry, Edsel and Henry Ford II to keep and regain control of their manufacturing empire against this backdrop.

A great resource for automobile enthusiasts, students of WWII, and anyone interested in the joys and heartaches of families in business together.

as relevant and interesting today as on the day it was written. it will make you proud to be an American!
