Makers of the United States Air Force
This book was first published in 1987 and has proven an indispensable reference work for anyone interested in the history of the U.S. Air Force, and particularly, in the role that key individuals have played in its evolution. Many of the individuals profiled in this book are well-known to students of air and space power. All of them were dedicated to an ideal - to produce a new form of military force, a force that would achieve victory in war by exploitation and dominance of the third dimension. Includes discussions of Benjamin Foulois, Frank Andrews, Harold George, Hugh Knerr, George Kenney, Willem Kepner, Elwood Quesada, Hoyt Vandenberg, Benjamin Davis, Jr., Bernard Schriever and Robinson Risner.
