Abstract:

The Final Report published in this volume has been taken from Air Service Information Circular Aviation, Volume II, No. 180, 15 February 1921. Substantive changes made in the Office of the Chief of Air Service when the Final Report was being prepared for publication in 1921 have been pointed out in notes provided by the editor. The source for the section on corps observation in the Tactical History included in this volume is the Air Service Information Circular Heavier-than-Air, Volume I, No. 75, 12 June 1920 the source for the section on army observation, pursuit, day bombardment, and observation balloons is a microfilm T-619 copy of Gorrells History of the Air Service, AEF, Ser. D, Vol. I. The last four sections, which vary greatly in style, have been edited in the same general manner as the section on corps edited in the same general manner as the section on corps observation was edited when it was prepared for printing in 1920. The first part of the Tactical History, a seventeen-page section entitled The Achievement of the Air Service, has been omitted since a revised and edited version of the same material appears as Chapters I-III of the Final Report.
