On December 29th, 1940, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave a historic radio broadcast that is now known as the “Arsenal of Democracy.” Now, Fiat Chrysler is looking to recognize this broadcast’s 75th anniversary with a short documentary, called “Automakers and the Arsenal of Democracy.” At the time of the original radio broadcast, Fiat Chrysler (known then as the Chrysler Corporation) was a primary supplier for the military.
