In Return to Glory, journalist Matthew DeBord tells the recent story of Ford. A decade ago, CEO Alan Mulally took over the company and helped it weather the financial crisis and a stock price that plunged to $1 a share, without a government bailout. It was enough for Ford to dream of repeating racing history. DeBord revisits the story of the 1960s, details the creation of the new GT, and follows the team through the racing season, leading to Le Mans in June, 2016. This fabled 24-hour endurance race is designed to break cars and drivers, and it was at Le Mans that Ford’s comeback was put to the ultimate test.
