Battle-front ... U.S.A.

OUR valiant Navy is in action on every ocean, on battle lines stretching around the world. Our proud Merchant Marine, under the leadership of the U. S. Maritime Commission, is carrying the war to the enemy with ever-increasing power.

In Todd Shipyards, on every coast, armies of skilled men are waging another battle ... fighting against time in the world's greatest shipbuilding program—and beating all records. From day to day, hundreds of new merchant vessels and fighting ships of every type will join the mightiest armada in history.

Backed by a hard-hitting maritime tradition, with production at top speed, America swings into the battle line toward Victory!
