Hap Arnold and the Evolution of American Air Power




“Until now [General Henry “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 twentieth century……[Arnold] was a consummate politician……[and a] strategist, one who almost single-handedly built up the U.S. Army Air Forces and give it a distinct mission.” -Air & Space/Smithsonian (paperback).
