The men and their machines, the study of the U.S. Navy’s air group and air wing commanders is a study of carrier aviation itself. This detailed Book presents a history of the establishment of the carrier air group commander billet and the attendant formal air groups. Divided into four sections; section one “A Historical Overview,” reviews naval aviation from 1898 to 1922. Section two: “Evolving System,” discusses the genesis and evolution of the air group/wing commander billet, as well as the development of the organizations they commanded. Section 3: “The Men,” profiles more than forty of the Navy’s more notable CAGs by use of their personal reminiscences and anecdotes. The final section “The Machines,” contains a chronological selection of photographs and some profile drawings of the aircraft flown by wing commanders from 1931 to present. Hardbound and approx. 215 pages.
