This book offers the reader a fully comprehensive and easily readable history of how U.S. Army aviation developed between the wars (under the leadership of officers like Billy Mitchell, Oscar Westover, Frank Andrews, Henry "Hap" Arnold, and Carl Spaatz) to become the most powerful air force on earth during World War II.
