Tate asks whether the Army's seemingly slow (in the airmen's opinion) development of airpower before World War II was caused by institutional hostility toward airmen; Hammond investigates whether the Air Force's reluctance to accept John Boyd's ideas was caused by institutional rejection of a brilliant iconoclast.
Second, he challenges the more basic myth that the Army was a poor steward of aviation, arguing that the service was a competent and evenhanded guardian of aviation prior to World War II.
Throughout this period, however, aviation was the most expensive branch in the Army, and airmen were chronically unsatisfied.

One aviation report seriously complained that even the numerous birds overhead were being crowded out of the air by the concentration of traffic.

Little of any length or depth has been written about naval air’s interwar developments, especially from such a deeply personal aspect, and so this new effort, from an experienced author, historian, and naval aviator, is welcome.
An interesting aside relates how early air operations were frequently filmed, so that aviators could study launching and recovery techniques.
