Engineers of Victory
"Engineers of Victory" is a new account of how the tide was turned against the Nazis by the Allies in the Second World War, the focus being on the problem-solvers: Major-General Perry Hobart, who invented the "funny tanks" which flattened the curve on the D-Day beaches; Flight Lieutenant Ronnie Harker "the man who put the Merlin in the Mustang"; and Captain "Johnny" Walker, the convoy captain who worked out how to sink U-boats with a "creeping barrage."

Not just engineering in the sense of mechanical or electronic contrivances, but engineering in the sense of solving problems. How do you get supply ships from North American to Britain? There are lots of pieces to answer that question, and how should they be put together?
