A fascinating book about wartime politics, military strategies, and the birth pains of an independent U.S. Air Force - which was forged in fire over Brest, Schweinfurt, and Berlin. Sequel to author's A Few Great Captains - which traced the history of the U.S. Army Air Corps from its beginning to the onset of the German Blitzkrieg - picks up the story where Captains left off and continues through the strategic bombing of the Third Reich from 1942 to the end of the war in Europe. The story of a handful of air commanders who risked all for what they believed, at the conference table and in the cockpit. Prior owner's bookplate upon front endpaper else unmarked. Very light wear.
