States Air Force History. An Annotated Bibliography
[110 Pages, 7.64mb] –
Reports of American aircraft events at Fort Myer, Virginia, in 1908 and
published extensively in the United States and Europe, marked the beginning of
an immense flood of literature about military aviation and aviators, and air
deeds in war and peace. This annotated bibliography on U. S. Air Force history
is a sampling of that literature, prepared primarily for the student and

Shield, Winged Sword: A History of the United States Air Force. Volume 1,
[524 Pages, 7.55mb] – Throughout its first century, military
aviation helped advance the interests of the United States. From a curiosity,
fragile and of uncertain value, the warplane has become a devastating weapon.
Moreover, ballistic missiles and surveillance satellites have joined aircraft in
this aerial array. In these two volumes, the authors try to describe and
analyze, in the context of national policy and international rivalries, the
evolution of land-based air power since the United States Army in 1907
established an Aeronautical Division responsible to the Chief Signal Officer.
This work, in addition to commemorating the Air Force’s 50th anniversary, also
commemorates almost 100 years of progress in the design and use of aerial
weaponry. By placing airmen and their machines in an appropriate context, it
provides a clearer understanding of the central role of the Air Force in
current American defense policy. Volume I, containing the first 12 chapters,
begins with balloons and the earliest heavier-than-air machines. It carries the
story through World War II to the establishment of the United States Air Force
as a service separate from, but equal to, the Army and the Navy. Volume II
picks up the narrative at the Korean War, takes it through the War in Southeast
Asia, the Gulf War, to the drawdown following the end of the Cold War. Part I:
The Early and Interwar Years, 1907-1939, contains The Roots of U.S. Military
Aviation, The Air Service in the Great War, From Air Service to Air Corps — The
Era of Billy Mitchell, The Coming of the GHQ Air Force, 1925-1935, and The
Heyday of the GHQ Air Force, 1935-1939. Part II: World War II, 1939-1945,
contains Reaction to the War in Europe, The Army Air Forces in Desperate
Battle, 1941-1942, Building Air Power, The Defeat of Italy and Germany, and
Victory over Japan. Part III: Building the Air Force, 1945-1950, contains The
Quest for Independence and Framing Air Force Missions.
