Remainder Mark. In this fascinating nuts-and-bolts account of the previously unexplored strategic factors that led to Allied victory, Paul Kennedy reveals how the leadersí grand strategy was practically achieved by the ordinary soldiers, scientists, engineers and businessmen responsible for realizing their commandersí visions of success. In January 1943, FDR and Churchill established the Allied objectives for the war: to defeat the Nazi Blitzkrieg; to control the Atlantic sea lanes and the air over Western and Central Europe; to take the fight to the European mainland; and to end Japanís imperialism. Astonishingly, a little over a year later, these ambitious goals had nearly all been accomplished. With riveting tactical detail, The Engineers of Victory reveals how. From exactly how thousands of individual Allied planes and fighting ships were choreographed to collectively pull off the invasion of Normandy, to how crew chiefs perfected the high-flying and inaccessible B-29 Superfortress that would drop the atomic bombs on Japan, Kennedy reshapes our understanding of the Second World Warís most crucial victories. In The Engineers of Victory Kennedy uncovers the real heroes of the war, highlighting for the first time the creative strategies, tactics and organizational decisions that made the lofty Allied objectives into a successful reality.
