This book is fantastic - it reads like a riveting novel, but, it is true! I never realized the extent of the "backstory" of FDR's America being "The Arsenal of Democracy."

A reminder that the "greatest generation" was not as simple as the history books make it seem.

This book is less about the role of Detroit as the arsenal of democracy, and more about the discord between Edsel Ford and his father, Henry, and Harry Bennett (head of the Service Department). Notwithstanding this point, the book is a real page turner and is well written and researched. Definitely worth a read if you are interested in military history.
