Synopsis

Hero or Villain? THE FIREBOMBING OF TOKYO. Strategic Air Command. John F. Kennedy. Dr. Strangelove. George Wallace. All of these have one man in common--General Curtis LeMay, who remains as unknowable and controversial as he was in life. Until now. Warren Kozak traces the trajectory of America's most infamous general, from his troubled background and heroic service in Europe to his firebombing of Tokyo, guardianship of the U.S. nuclear arsenal in the Cold War, frustrated career in government, and short-lived political run. Curtis LeMay's life spanned an epoch in American military history, from the small U.S. Army Air Corps of the interwar years to the nuclear age. LeMay: The Life and Wars of General Curtis LeMay tells the whole story of the innovative pilot and navigator; the courageous general who led his bomber formations from the front, flying the lead bomber; the brilliant strategist; the unflagging patriot; and the founder of modern strategic bombing, who was famous and notorious in turns.

In LeMay: The Life and Wars of General Curtis LeMay, you'll learn: * How LeMay developed the strategy and techniques that transformed Allied bombing in World War II, radically improving results and saving lives * Why he developed the plan of fire-bombing Tokyo * Why he expected a war with Russia * How he tried to prevent the Bay of Pigs disaster * Who really came up with the idea of bombing the North Vietnamese back into "the Stone Age" * Why he agreed to be George Wallace's running mate in the election of 1968--despite loathing Wallace and most of his policies LeMay: The Life and Wars of General Curtis LeMay gives an unprecedented glimpse into the might and mind of one of the founding fathers of air power, whose influence, and controversy, continues to this day.
