God is on the side with the most artillery. Wars in the past have been fought by armies of men. The war today is being fought by armies of machines, and ultimate victory will belong to the side which can most quickly place an overwhelming force of fighting equipment on the world battlefield. For many months the United States stood as a spectator while other nations prepared their economies to amass such a force. We are now faced with the imperative need of overtaking and passing the capacity for production of war equipment that has been built or seized by the Axis nations, a need which will stretch our potential capacity to the utmost.
