The author presents an indepth picture of the infamous U.S. general, Curtis LeMay, a controversial innovator in U.S. Army Air Force history. LeMay's military feats include transforming the strategic bombing tactics of the U.S. Army Air Force in World War II, leading the Berlin Airlift, and bringing the Air Force’s Strategic Air Command (SAC) to preeminence in the Cold War. In thirteen chapters, the author describes the details of LeMay's military career through the time of his retirement, including his experience as George Wallace’s vice-presidential candidate. The book presents Lemay's life in a way that includes insight into LeMay's background and personality, the latter of which garnered both notoriety and criticism. The result is an account that allows a broader, more sympathetic view of LeMay than historians generally offer.
