During World War Two, a small number of aircraft companies were responsible for the design and production of the majority of the US aerial juggernaut that eventually defeated the Axis powers. Manufacturers such as Bell, Boeing, Lockheed. Republic. Douglas. Curtiss. North American, and Grumman accounted for the lion's share of American wartime aircraft production. Other, lesser known aircraft manufacturers and subcontractors also built the major manufacturers' aircraft under license. In addition to these companies, several other firms also tried to interest the military in a variety of types in an attempt to gain a share of the huge expenditures being allocated for military aircraft procurement.
