Where Eagles Land: Planning and Development of U.S. Army Airfields, 1910-1941


Focusing on the why of air base location, Brown considers the complex interplay of factors that shaped and formed the selection, retention, abandonment, and development of the system of flying fields and air bases for the U.S. Army Air Corps and its predecessor organizations from 1910-1941, a period heretofore only cursorily examined from this perspective. Brown consulted hundreds of documents, printed hearings, congressional reports, staff studies, technical manuals, and unit histories in constructing this fact-filled text.
