Brisk enthusiastic reporting, which surface skims America's war effort, and is -- as of this date -- up to the minute. This is the story of the nation's war enterprise and how it is being carried through. Two things can be held against the handling of a subject that should be of wide appeal:- the author speaks in superlatives, and selects only the most successful aspects, and his coverage is incomplete (i.e.. -- aviation given the big hand, shipbuilding almost ignored). If you want encouragement, you'll get it here in the picture of successful conversion, rapid substitutions, contribution of science, of business, of the FBI, of the Army itself. A good idea, only moderately successful in development.
