This is the story of war production – of how Allied industry won the war by massively out-producing the Axis powers. Forget the big-name generals and battle tactics. This was a war of the factories.

Giant firms like General Motors and Ford mass-produced tanks, planes and guns, while firms like Peugeot, in occupied Europe, were sabotaging their own factory-lines to undermine the Nazis. The series will also explore how German compa­nies were crippled by Nazi State planning. This series will change the way you think about World War Two, and much else besides. For it also helps explains why post-war history turned out as it did
