Lemayby Barrett Tillman, Tom Weiner, Wesley K. Clark, Tom Weiner
LeMay was a terrifying, complex, and brilliant general. In World War II, he ordered the firebombing of Tokyo and was in charge when were Atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He was responsible for tens of thousands of civilian deaths a fact he liked to celebrate by smoking Cuban cigars. But LeMay was also the man who single-handedly transformed the American air force from a ramshackle team of poorly-trained and badly equipped pilots into one of the fiercest and most efficient weapons of the war. Over the last decades, most U.S. military missions were carried out entirely through the employment of the air force--this is LeMay's legacy. Packed with breathtaking battles in the air and inspiring leadership tactics on the ground, LeMay will keep readers on their edge of their seats.

just finished reading barrett tillmans newest bestseller 'lemay' I found it to be very impressive and very well researched and most well documented. what I liked about it was it was a small book yet it covered a fantastic biography of a leadership role in world war 2 and korea and this publication gave alot of command principles.from reading this book I learned that if it wasnt for general lemays aviation tactics alot more soldiers would have died.
