Liberty Ships and Victory Ships, America's Lifeline in War
tells the story of two World War II ship-building efforts. In 1941, with war raging in Europe, President Roosevelt authorized the production of 441-foot cargo ships. These Liberty ships proved too slow and small, so in 1943, a new effort began building Victory ships, which cruised at 18.5 mph, compared to the Liberty's 12.5 mph. By the war's end, the Maritime Commission had built 2,751 Liberty and 531 Victory ships.
