Ford in the Service of America

This is the history of the Ford Motor Company's achievements and products during World Wars I and II. It demonstrates how, in addition to well-known contributions like jeeps, Eagle Boats and B-24 Liberators, Ford also produced key items ranging from squad tents and the ultra precision gun director to tanks and aircraft engines. Details on each product and how Ford produced it are included. During both wars, the automotive giant used precision manufacturing methods and innovative designs and procedures to increase quantity and quality while lowering production costs.

"this is a topic that, to us, simply cannot be overdone. Thickly laden with facts and some of the lesser-known products and processes here are absolute delights. A good book, peppered with seldom-seen creations"--Hemmings Classic Car; "fascinating details"--Michigan Historical Review; "factual and straight-forward...the first work dedicated specifically to this area of Ford history...poignant...commendable...interesting and significant"--SAH Journal.
