Content descriptions

General Note: Includes index.
Formatted Contents Note: Preparing for war before Pearl Harbor -- Planning defense production after Pearl Harbor -- Aircraft engines and propellers -- Aircraft components and complete aircraft -- Tanks and other armored vehicles -- Jeeps, trucks, and amphibious vehicles -- Guns, shells, bullets, and other war goods -- The new workers -- Celebrating the production achievements.
Summary, etc.: A selection of nearly three hundred documentary photos, Images from the Arsenal of Democracy spans from 1940 until the end of the war, presenting up-close, rarely seen views of newly built plants and repurposed production lines, a staggering variety of war products and components, and the many workers behind Detroit's wartime production miracles. The human faces that Hyde presents are especially compelling, as photos show the critical role played by previously underused workers--namely women and African Americans.--Dust jacket.
