NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELER - SELECTED BY THE ECONOMIST AS ONE OF THE BEST BOKS OF THE YEAR

A rambunctious book that is itself alive with the animal spirits of the marketplace.--The Wall Street Journal

Freedom's Forge reveals how two extraordinary American businessmen--General Motors automobile magnate William Big Bill Knudsen and shipbuilder Henry J. Kaiser--helped corral, cajole, and inspire business leaders across the country to mobilize the arsenal of democracy that propelled the Allies to victory in World War I. Drafting top talent from companies like Chrysler, Republic Steel, Boeing, Lockheed, GE, and Frigidaire, Knudsen and Kaiser turned auto plants into aircraft factories and civilian assembly lines into fountains of munitions.
