I just came across this post.

I actually work at one of the plants mentioned in your excerpt. While the sentry posts have been removed from the facility we do have two still standing. There are two machine gun nests on top of two buildings out in our tank farm.

After the war, the government split this facility in two and sold it to two different companies. At the time, it was so advanced, the government didn't want one company to have an unfair advantage over the others.

The book sounds interesting. I'll have to try and find it.

Mike
