Hap Arnold and the Evolution of American Airpower
By

Rating
Emphasizing research and development, stepped-up aircraft production, crew training, and the growth of air bases, General Henry Harley "Hap" Arnold also advanced the doctrine of long-range strikes rather than support of ground forces as the air arm's primary combat strategy. Dik Alan Daso describes the technology, institutions, and individuals that influenced Arnold's decisions and shows how the peacetime experiences of World War II's foremost military airman shaped the evolution of American military aviation.

Reviews

"Until now [Hap Arnold] hasn't been blessed with a serious biography. Dik Daso, one of a handful of fighter pilots to earn a Ph.D. in history, fills the gap, and in the process uses Arnold's life as a metaphor for the development of U.S. air power in the first half of the 20th century.... [Arnold] was a consummate politician... [and a] strategist, one who almost single-handedly built up the U.S. Army Air Forces and gave it a distinct mission." Air & Space/Smithsonian "Arnold, the Air Force's only five-star general, is certainly a figure in American military history worth studying. As one of the very first group of pilots in the United States Army... he was 'there at the beginning' and was very influential in establishing the course and tempo of the development of the Air Corps, later the Air Force. Most interesting, and central to the biography Daso presents, was the relationship that Arnold established and developed with the scientific and industrial communities." ARMOR
