This traveling exhibit from the National WWII Museum tells the inspiring story of the Home Front effort that produced tanks, planes, ships, and guns with staggering speed and unparalleled energy. It was a surge in productivity that not only brought the country out of depression, but also created mighty military forces, supplied the Allies abroad, and opened new doors of opportunity and social change.

Manufacturing Victory: The Arsenal of Democracy was produced by The National World War II Museum.
