THE EXPENSE OF TOIL & SWEAT IN CREATING THE U.S. ARMY AIR CORPS

A Few Great Captains: The Men and Events That Shaped the Development of U.S. Air Power - Dewitt S. Copp

This book, in terms of research and attention to detail, offers the reader a comprehensive history of the uphill struggle that took place within the U.S. Army and Congress between the wars to establish an Army Air Corps as an essential and indispensible element in national defense. (This was a struggle not unlike what advocates of the aircraft carrier faced during the same era against the established "battleship minded" senior naval officer ruling class in the U.S. Navy.)
