(Tedder, 1948, p.14) In December Sir Arthur Tedder, Deputy Supreme Commander, SHAEF, was the officer designated to confer with Stalin, and he was immediately responsible to the Supreme Commander for all Allied air operations, General Eisenhower.
(Tedder, 1948, diagram no.5, p.106b) It was unfortunate that, as is made clear in the same booklet The French General Staff had all along a conception of air warfare broadly similar to that of the German General Staff and divergent from that of the British Air Staff.
(Tedder, 1948, p.31) In the fight for command at sea, and denying its use to the enemy, air forces now join as partners with naval forces, and, …it is conceivable that this command in the future may be secured mainly by air forces In some form or another.

Arthur Tedder became one of the most eminent figures of the Second World War: first as head of Anglo-American air forces in the Middle East, the Mediterranean and North Africa; then as Deputy Supreme Commander to General Eisenhower for the Allied campaign that began in Normandy and ended in Berlin.
In 1950, he became Britain's NATO representative in Washington: a year that saw the start of a hot war in Korea that threatened to spread around the globe.
In 'retirement', Tedder served as Chancellor of Cambridge University, Vice-Chairman of the British Broadcasting Corporation's Board of Governors and Chairman of the Standard Motor Company.

To do so, he turned to his respected deputy commander, Air Vice Marshal Arthur Tedder, who had risen to prominence “as a leader of large air forces consisting of all types of aircraft cooperating closely.
Tedder’s supervision of air assets during the invasion did not include a dedicated headquarters or staff.
In theory and at the top, Tedder relied on an advisory committee comprised of senior representatives from the various air forces.

Appointed Director-General of Research and Development., he immediately threw his energies into the post at a time when major changes and innovations were beginning to appear, such as the introduction of new monoplane eight gun fighters and the development of the new large four-engined bombers.
This problem was eventually solved by the appointment of Leigh-Mallory as Air Commander, South East Asia, thereby leaving Tedder effectively in command of all the Allied air assets operating on the continent up to the end of the war in Europe.
It was logical that on Portal's retirement as Chief of the Air Staff, Tedder should be appointed to replace him at the beginning of 1946 and on handing over the post in 1950, he spent a year in Washington as the Chairman of the British Joint Services Mission.

The respective leaders of this effort, Lt Gen Carl Spaatz and Air Vice Marshal Arthur Harris, were deeply committed to strategic bombing and reluctant to cede command prerogative to Leigh-Mallory, whom they believed incompetent to direct bomber forces.
The bomber generals readily recognized obligations to assist in the invasion but believed that their service to Overlord could best be accomplished via a cooperative arrangement with Eisenhower that left them freer to pursue the strategic bombing of Germany.
Tedder’s background made him palatable to all air commanders, and Eisenhower engineered an informal scheme of control centered on his deputy.

A September 1955 meeting between the CAS, MRAF Sir William Dixon, and his opposite number, Gen Nathan F. Twining, chief of staff, USAF (CSAF), sowed the seeds for integrated Anglo-American nuclear targeting, not least to avoid wasteful duplication of effort.
