Bomber: The Formation and Early Years of Strategic Air Command (Free PDF Book)
Nonfiction | War/Military | Aviation
From the Introduction: This is a story of a major combat organization being formed in the midst of a momentous change in world events. It is not a narrative history. Rather, it is an attempt to place Strategic Air Command (SAC) in the context of what was then a new global dynamic, later dubbed the Cold War, showing how it faced the continually evolving challenges of its time.
Bomber explores the factors that led to the establishment of Strategic Air Command, the challenges it faced in its formation and first decade of existence, and the lessons we can derive from that experience. Covers the period from World War II, the early Cold War era, and the Korean War.
