The Fords: An American Epic chronicles three generations of Fords and of the dramatic conflict between fathers and sons that played out against the backdrop of America's greatest industrial empire. The story begins with Henry I, the mechanical wizard, tinkerer and mad genius who drove the automobile into the heart of American life and conquered the world with it. But in the end he became an embittered crank who so possessively loved the company he built that when his son, Edsel, tried to change it to suit the times, Henry destroyed him. It was left to Edsel's eldest son, Henry II, to avenge him and save the Ford Motor Company. From the details of Henry I's illicit affair, which produced a son, to the life and loves of "Hank the Deuce" and his celebrated feud with Lee lacocca, this is an engrossing account of a vital chapter in American history.
