comment Did the Germans lose the U-Boat war in World war II because of a shortage of quality, rather than quantity?
Note: von Trapp did have seven children before being widowed and hiring Maria Kutschera as a tutor, so those things were not fictionalized.

comment How much faster were the printing presses than hand writing?
The Gutenberg bible had on the order of 625 words per page, which at 22/min is about 28 min. If printing were 0.166 min per page, it would be about 170 times faster for an infinite press run. (However the Gutenberg bible had a run of 180 and took 12 people 3 years, which is about 28 minutes per page also.)
