Description

THE U.S. AIR FORCE: A Pictorial History is a new and unique way of presenting the colourful history of the United States Air Force. From the birth of the tiny air arm early in the century right up to the involvement of the global force of today in VietNam, the sweeping panorama of courage and foresight is  shown in full-color reproductions of outstanding paintings. From the Air Force Art  Collection of more than 2,500 canvases, the authors have chosen 146 representative works and arranged them to tell the story of aerospace  power, its development, its scope, as well as of the brave men who  brought it into being. Seventy-nine of the nation's top illustrators are presented here through their dramatic and inspiring art, lending depth  and feel-ing to the succession of trials and triumphs, battles and  aircraft, dreams and traditions, that make up the history of our times.  The concise narrative, keyed to each illustration, is verified by the USAF Historical Branch; it provides an authentic and complete background to the art reproductions, placing them in true perspective. The former Chief of the Army Air Corps, Major General Benjamin Foulois — a man who made much of the history shown here — says: This book  presents a new and exciting view of a great saga. The crisp text provides an effective backdrop for the excel-lent art and the expressive brushes  of the artists lend an added dimension of depth. I think that this  unique volume will bring to its reader a greater appreciation of what  the Air Force is and what it means to the nation.
