Praise for LeMay: The Life and Wars of General Curtis LeMay "Fearless, innovative, shrewd, abrasive, LeMay is the father of modern air power and the man Robert McNamara has called, 'the finest combat commander the US has ever produced.' His flaws are famous, but this fine, candid book also shows how much we owe him." --R. JAMES WOOLSEY, former Director of Central Intelligence "Warren Kozak has captured brilliantly the essence of one of America's greatest generals and combat commanders. I knew General LeMay when I was a captain and he was chief of staff. LeMay was the United States Air Force's greatest strategist and tactician. He led the way in defeating Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan with airpower, and was instrumental in deterring the Soviet Union during his leadership of the Strategic Air Command. He was not widely liked, but he was greatly respected by those who served under him." --LIEUTENANT GENERAL THOMAS G. MCINERNEY, United States Air Force, retired, former Assistant Vice Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force "A splendid analysis of and tribute to one of America's great, if under-appreciated, war fighters. LeMay had a genius for organizing forces and campaigns--reflected in the World War II air campaigns against both Germany and Japan, the Berlin airlift, and the creation of the Strategic Air Command from the shambles of post World War II demobilization. While he may have had 'almost no social graces'--as an Air Force Chief observed--he was a disciplinarian who served the nation effectively in war and peace. This is an excellent biography." --JAMES SCHLESINGER, former Secretary of Defense
