Example text

Gen. Ralph F. Stearley (1898-1973). From 1936 to 1940 Stearley was at the Air Corps Tactical School. During World War 11, he held a variety of AAF posts, including command of state-side tactical units. In June 1943 Colonel Stearley, Col. Morton H. McKinnon, AAF, and Lt. Col. Orin H. Moore, USA, wrote War Department Field Manual 10CL-20,Command and Employment qfAir Power. The manual was published on July 21, 1943, and became the fundamental doctrinal statement of operational independence for the Army Air Forces.

When Eisenhower had made his decision some months prior to the invasion, what kind of assessment was made that you could tell him, “We will have control of the air, and there is no question about our ability to control the air so that your invasion can take place”? These kinds of gut issues keep coming up. People keep asking me-and I didn’t want to get into Vietnam-but they keep asking me these kinds of questions as if there is a scientific answer. There is no scientific answer to this. It’s a combination of a lot of things.

Quesada: Okay. 28 The doctrine that Spike has referred to: Coningham is the architect of it. He made everybody accept it, and almost everybody thereafter was forced to adopt it, and I think it should be recorded that he established it over tremendous opposition. He overcame the concept of using the air force as artillery, and he established the doctrine that if an airman is left to use his own weapon and use his experience he would further the cause of the army or the ground battle. Ferguson: It is worth noting again that the RAF was a separate service at this point.
