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.
