The General Raymond E. Mason Jr. Distinguished Lecture on World War II -

Thursday, March 14, 2013
5:00 pm reception, 6:00 pm presentation, 7:00 pm audience Q&A and booksigning
The US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center at The National WWII Museum

Join us Thursday, March 14th to hear from bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize Finalist, Arthur Herman, as he discusses his latest book, Freedom's Forge. Remarkable as it may seem today, there once was a time when the president of the United States could pick up the phone and ask the president of General Motors to resign his position and take the reins of a great national enterprise.  And the CEO would oblige, no questions asked, because it was his patriotic duty.

In Freedom's Forge, bestselling author Arthur Herman takes us back to that time, revealing how two extraordinary American business men - automobile magnate William Knudsen and shipbuilder Henry J. Kaiser - helped corral, cajole, and inspire business leaders across the country to mobilize the "arsenal of democracy" that propelled the Allies to victory in World War II.

Dr. Arthur Herman is a former visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, and the author of many books, including How the Scots Invented the Modern World and Gandhi & Churchill which was the 2009 Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in General Nonfiction.

All events will take place in the Museum's new US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center.

The events are free and open to the public, but registration is strongly encouraged.  Please register by clicking here or by calling 504-528-1944 x 412 and leaving a message with your name, number in party and the event you are RSVP-ing for.
