Review This Book
This biography of Brig Gen Kenneth N. Walker provides an in-depth look at the career of one of airpower’s pioneer thinkers. Martha Byrd traces Walker’s emergence from one of the early converts to airpower to his role as a key player in the formation of strategic bombardment doctrine. Her look at his performance in the Southwest Pacific theater during World War II gives us a deep insight into Walker’s place in history as an innovator in the employment of airpower. Byrd not only highlights Walker’s accomplishments but also provides a look at his often stormy relationships with fellow officers and in his personal life.
