Descrizione libro Mariner. 1 Paperback(s), 2014. soft. Condizione libro: New. As the United States prepared to enter World War II, the military was in desperate need of tanks, jeeps, and airplanes to counter a heavily mechanized Germany; in his "Arsenal of Democracy" speech in December 1940, Franklin D. Roosevelt called on American industry to supply them—in particular the Ford Motor Company, whose president Edsel Ford had made the claim that he would construct the world's largest airplane factory and build a "bomber an hour." In this history of Edsel and his anti-war father Henry, of FDR and Detroit's wartime industrial economy, A.J. Baime "chronicles this little-known, but terrifically important battle to build America's bomber force with narrative zest and delicious detail" (Neal Bascomb)."Baime previously wrote on racing and the auto industry in Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans. Here he explores the role of Detroit and the Ford Motor Company in the mammoth effort to transform the auto industry into munitions factories that produced the thousands of planes, tanks, and artillery that would be the deciding factor in the effort to defeat Nazi and Japanese aggression in WWII. At the core was an epic battle between father and son, the cantankerous industrialist Henry Ford, who despised war, and his sensitive son, Edsel, who could never emerge from his father's shadow. It's hard to imagine the massive scale and scope of the Willow Run plant built by the Fords for the express purpose of putting out 'a bomber a day' or the idea that government and industry could ever again come together with such singular intent and purpose. Yet the war effort at home was not accomplished without a great deal of conflict of will, adversity, and sacrifice, which Baime details with great care and empathy for his principal subjects."—Booklist 364.

Descrizione libro Mariner Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reprint. 200 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A touching and absorbing portrait of one of the forgotten heroes of World War II . . . A. J. Baime has given us a memorable portrait not just of an industry going to war but of a remarkable figure who helped to make victory possible. --Wall Street Journal As the United States entered World War II, the military was in desperate need of tanks, jeeps, and, most important, airplanes. Germany had been amassing weaponry and airplanes for five years--the United States for only months. So President Roosevelt turned to the American auto industry, specifically the Ford Motor Company, where Edsel Ford made the outrageous claim that he would construct the largest airplane factory in the world, a plant that could build a bomber an hour. And so began one of the most fascinating and overlooked chapters in American history. Drawing on unique access to archival material and exhaustive research, A. J. Baime has crafted a riveting narrative that hopscotches from Detroit to Washington to Normandy, from the assembly lines to the frontlines, and from the depths of professional and personal failure to the heights that Ford Motor Company and the American military ultimately achieved in the sky. Wars are fought on many fronts, and A. J. Baime chronicles this little-known, but terrifically important battle to build America s bomber force with narrative zest and delicious detail. Put simply, it s a great read. --Neal Bascomb, best-selling author of The Perfect Mile Fast-paced . . . the story certainly entertains. --New York Times. Codice libro della libreria ABZ9780544483873
