Between 1900 and 1930, Detroit has grown tremendously. However, the entry of the U.S. into World War II brought many changes to the city. For over three years (1942-45), the production of commercial automobiles was entirely ceased; instead, all plants would build M5 Stuart tanks, military jeeps, and B-24 bombers for the use of the Allies. The decline of the city has not stopped since (read: Detroit’s bankruptcy follows decades of decay on Yahoo News and image source: Detroit abandoned city).
