Praise

Winner of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics History Manuscript Award
“[U]ntil now [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 US 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 US Army Air Forces and gave it a distinct mission.”—Air & Space
