Some time ago, a TV personality coined the phrase "the greatest generation" to describe those of us who were schooled during the Great Depression, beat the veteran armies of Japan and Germany to a pulp in a worldwide war and turned our industry into a war machine the likes of which the world had never seen. But he was wrong. Our generation was just as ignorant, clumsy and befogged as any of its predecessors, but it was American and - at least to us - that made all the difference.
He was difficult to argue with because events usually proved him right, and under his guidance, American industry reached a production capability that surprised even those engaged in the process.
