I was completely surprised when I read this book. I expected it to be about how Pres Lincoln managed the Civil War but instead found how the United States came out of the depression to build the industrial capacity that allowed us to win World War II. The author covers the petroleum pipelines, the synthetic rubber industry, the conversion of the automobile industry into armament and many others. A must read as you think about how we are going to get out of the mess we, as a country, are in.

This really is not how America produced the goods to defeat the Axis. It is about the lost chance to build a true democracy. It's about how the War Department and "dollar a year men" won the battle to delude the American people and take control, lying all the way. Fear of telling the people what was true resulted in missing a chance at real democracy. Because of that he concludes "we are in an exceedingly curious position of being at once the strongest and most nervous nation on earth". It's about what Democracy is and is not. Mike Basta
