The forgotten Air Force

by Anthony Christopher Cain | 17 March 2002
Hardback
Category: European History
Synopsis
Germany's 1940 defeat of the Armée de l'air, perhaps the world's preeminent air force at the close of World War I, is commonly attributed to incompetent French leadership. Drawing on primary French sources not previously available to historians, Cain argues that in the 1930s the French Air Force was intellectually and operationally constrained, owing to an insufficient interest in and understanding of aviation by the Army and Navy high commands and the French government. But there was certainly no shortage of qualified officers who understood the capabilities of a modern air force in warfare. Through this groundbreaking and innovative analysis, Cain brings a measure of balance to European interwar history.
