Abstract:

The objective of this thesis is to provide a record of the most important developments in the evolution of doctrine for the command and control of organic divisional aviation between 1942 and 1961, and provide a source of reference data for more detailed study of the subject. Throughout this paper, the words command and control are used separately and should not be considered together as a term referring to a communication system for directing and controlling air activities. Since doctrine for employment of organic aviation was very similar in each type of division, emphasis is placed on infantry division employment doctrine. Major differences between the infantry divisions and other types of divisions are discussed briefly where they are of interest.
