The Impact of Faulty Environmental Doctrine
AIR WAR COLL MAXWELL AFB AL
Pagination or Media Count:
United States Army Air Forces USAAF environmental doctrine, formulated during the interwar years and based on the bomber will always get through philosophy, produced faulty USAAF organizational doctrine and the resulting World War II USAAF operational military strategy. As a direct result, airmen conducting strategic bombing missions in the European and Pacific theaters had to use tactics and technology to overcome this flawed, doctrinally- based, strategy. This operational strategy was the consequence of an untested, unofficial doctrine that took on a life of its own. It became the environmental doctrine for the use of USAAF aircraft.
