MacArthur's Air Force: American Airpower Over The Pacific And The Far East, 1941-51
by Bill Yenne
- Air, Ground, & Naval Warfare, World War II
Take to the skies with General MacArthur
General Douglas MacArthur is one of the towering figures of World War II, and indeed of the twentieth century, but his leadership of the second largest air force in the USAAF is often overlooked. Following the end of World War II, MacArthur was the highest military and political authority in Japan, and at the outbreak of the Korean War in June 1950, he was named as Commander in Chief, United Nations Command.
Written by award-winning aviation historian Bill Yenne, this engrossing book traces the journey of American air forces in the Pacific under General MacArthur's command, from their lowly beginnings to their eventual triumph over Imperial Japan, followed by their entry into the jet age in the skies over Korea.
