The American
Aircraft Factory
in World War II
By Bill Yenne

 

 

Virtual Journey to By-Gone Patriotism . . .

If you ever felt the thunder of a World War II aircraft engine. If you relish the thought of a generation of Americans rising to meet the Herculean task of Freedom's preservation. Then, this book, in pictures alone, will ignite your appreciation of past efforts, and their successes.

An eye-catching, outstanding production results . . .

There are plenty of visual treatments of the battles of World War II, but relatively few covering the underlying military support systems at home. The American Aircraft Factory in World War II fills this gap, covering the history, work, and production efforts of military aircraft factories across the country that contributed greatly to the success of soldiers. This was a major manufacturing shift which changed the business and military face of America: chapters document the production of fighters by manufacturers using new and converted factories alike, and even pack in fifty unusual color photos new to print, here. An eye-catching, outstanding production results.

Flying High . . .

Some years ago I had the opportunity to interview a group of older women. I asked each of them what had been the best time of their lives. They all responded alike: the war years. Men, dances, and work, they said, and giggled with the rush of memory. The war created the first real optimism in a generation. The war banished the world-weariness of the twenties and swept away the pervasive hopelessness of the Depression. There was work. There was purpose. Those powerful emotions show palpably in the photographs of this excellent volume.

I see no point in enumerating all the types of aircraft represented in this work. Liberators, Mustangs, Fortresses, Avengers, Texans. They are all here. Some masses of longerons and bulkheads too raw to name, others being pushed by many hands onto the tarmac. There are roomfuls of props and engines and parts of all sorts, lines of bombers waiting to mate with their engines, turrets wanting guns. And everywhere in the distant background read the words of war. Buy Bonds, We Can't Win Without Them, Keep`Em Flying. How different from a sign appearing on a Naval Aircraft Factory gate in 1918.

"Spanish flu has endangered the prosecution of the war in Europe.... Don't spit."

Mr. Yenne has produced a wonderful volume. Nothing to spit at here.
