Fords in My Past
This book is a recollection of the author's experiences at Ford Motor Company working for three famous Fords: Henry, Edsel, and Henry II. 'The Fords in My Past' highlights the major technical accomplishments of the late 1920s through the 1950s, and describes never-before-revealed stories of the challenges the company faced with the growing competition in the automotive industry. Filled with fascinating historical details and pictures, this book will provide insight into the outstanding leadership skills and true personalities behind America's first family of the auto industry. From the Foreword...'Many books about the Fords have been written by historians from cold archival material and newsworthy events reflecting bad publicity. I firmly believe that this does not portray the true character or the dedication and concern of the three Fords to create a better world for all of us. Their personal entrepreneurial spirit, their vision, and their willingness to pursue projects that offered little promise of great financial rewards should be made a matter of record.'
