Description: 178 pages, 247 photos...From the poorly armed and understaffed Air Force that existed when Pearl Harbor was attacked, the United States produced, just a few years later, the greatest Air Force the world has ever seen. The effort to achieve this was unprecedented. Thousands of fine young men gave their lives in training accidents. Often, families who had lived on their land for generations were forced to move with little notice, their homes and buildings sold off or bulldozed. Within six months a small city replaced the farm or vacant land and training would start.
