Review This Book
Major Daso tells the story of the founding of the scientific and technological base of today’s US Air Force. He explains how Henry H. “Hap” Arnold and Theodore von Kármán ensured that theoretical science rather than empiricism grew to dominate Air Force research and development infrastructure. This story shows how personalities drive actions, institutions reflect personalities, and the interaction of these f actors influenced, and continue to mold, the evolution of American air supremacy.
