Summary
Following World War II, the U.S. government continued its many contracts with large companies that built its weapons, aircraft, and vehicles. Factories that could build both commercial automobiles and military jets were part of what President Dwight Eisenhower later called the "military-industrial complex", and were promoted by military leaders as vital in the continuing cold war with the Soviet Union.
