KIRKUS REVIEW

The war plane production story is one of the miracles of the war- and here it is, dramatized with superb photographs, and retold in text which is more than expanded captions, for each section is presented with a summary of the preparation for aerial defense of the United States, which in 1936 was virtually non existent. Japan's defeat- and to a lesser extent Germany's defeat- demonstrated the new theory of aerial warfare, but it was the teamwork of the seven major companies back home that made it possible. 300 photographs, showing not only the planes but the factories, the processes, even the paperwork and the tooling, trace the steps by which dreams became realities -- and modern aviation industry came of age. This volume is one of twenty four titles on aviation published by D.S.& P.
