No justice
Embracing oppression?

Latent strength

Yeah, a few stats are stuck in my head. For example, Henry Ford had built an incredible assembly line for aircraft in the US. It was run 24/7. He wanted it to output 1 in every 60. Unfortunately, the factory could manage only 1 in every 70.

That's one aircraft every 70 minutes. How were they tested? The plane would come out of the factory, get fueled and then flown away. No crash? Then, it works!

Germany had less than 2,000 Tiger tanks against the American, British, and Canadian troops on the Western front. America built and shipped over 50,000 Sherman tanks. 

Just reading about American logistics makes it clear why the Axis Powers were doomed.
