  Command and Control of Organic Aviation in U.S. Army Divisions 1942 to 1961 - Storming Media
Abstract: The objective of this thesis is to provide a record of the most important developments in the evolution of doctrine for the command and control of organic divisional aviation between 1942 and 1961, and provide a source of reference data for more detailed study of the subject.
Throughout this paper, the words "command" and "control" are used separately and should not be considered together as a term referring to a communication system for directing and controlling air activities.
Since doctrine for employment of organic aviation was very similar in each type of division, emphasis is placed on infantry division employment doctrine.

 History of Marine Corps Aviation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Marine Aviation played a major role in all phases of the operation and, because it was an all-Marine-type landing from the initial stages, assumed the overall aviation command as the force was augmented by Army Air Corps and allied squadrons from Australia and New Zealand.
From late August 1942, when the Marine Aviation defense operation began, until the end of the immediate threat in mid-November, there were gradual increases in fighter and dive- bomber strength.
During the early weeks of September 1942, the fighter squadrons were periodically supported by aircraft and pilots of VMF-212, led by Lieutenant Colonel Joe Bauer, and VMO-251, with skipper Lieutenant Colonel John Hart.
