TRANSPORT FOR WAR by Edward Hungerford


Email this review


Someday the story can be told -- and will be told, for there is a tremendous story there to toil. But this isn't it. There are highlights on the fine job the railroads are doing in the war, but they are out of perspective, colored by Hungerford's tendency to see the job of transport from the angle of a railroad chamber of commerce. Witness such a statement as:- ""the men in subchasers on the North Atlantic have no more hazardous duties than those railroaders (in wintry northern New York) who are helping to win the war.""...He writes superficially of river boats, trucks, planes; he minimizes problems of gas and rubber; most of his dope is old stuff.
