The book was published in order to celebrate their 75th year and includes a traumatic event in World War II that nearly brought the company to collapse. Danish saboteurs, with help from German occupying forces, blew up theStruer factory in retaliation for the company's refusal to work with the Germans and their role in the Danish resistance. Bang & Olufsen survived the setback and the company flourished.

In 1978, Bang & Olufsen was honoured by New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) (see Exhibitions 1) with a special exhibit displaying their products and in 2000, in honour of their three-quarters of a century existence, they hosted the "Vision and Legend" exhibition at the Danish Design Centre in Copenhagen, opening just before the ribbon was cut on the new Oresund Bridge connecting Sweden and Denmark.
