Abstract "This book fills in the critical gap in Cold War and Air Force history by telling the story of General Thomas S. Power for the first time. Thomas Power was second only to Curtis LeMay in forming the Strategic Air Command, one of the premier combat organizations of the twentieth century, but he is rarely mentioned today. What little is written about Power describes him as LeMay's willing hatchet man, uneducated, unimaginative, autocratic, and sadistic. Based on extensive archival research, To Rule the Skies seeks to overturn this appraisal"-- Provided by publisher.
