    “They grew up poor in Niles, Michigan. Red-heads. Stout guys; reputedly pretty good in a bar fight. And close—about as close as brothers can be, John and Horace Dodge.”

    And so Bill Millard begins his chapter on the history of the Dodge brothers in the Turbo Diesel Register’s Dodge/Cummins Historical Perspective book. His concise history of the Dodge Brothers and their rise into the developing automotive industry will keep your attention, and very possibly, teach you a few things about John and Horace you didn’t previously know.
