As early as 1920, US Army General Billy Mitchell began sounding alarm bells about an inevitable Japanese invasion from sea-based aircraft. Through the press and in person he lobbied naval brass about... More > America’s woefully unprepared defensive air power but his talk of dogfights over the Pacific with superior planes was laughed at and dismissed by all. Mitchell's vision of a US ‘Air Arm’ would have meant massive, costly upgrades to the nation’s dated flying machines owned by private firms holding patents on aircraft machinery. Old guard soldiers, like John J. Pershing, dismissed as delusional ravings Mitchell’s belief that a battleship could be destroyed by a bomber. Mitchell’s outspoken press conferences about an airplane trust supported by corrupt government officials led to his court-martial for insubordination in 1925.

Turning the Tide: The Naval Air Battles of the Coral Sea and Midway By Arne Markland
eBook (ePub): $10.00
America was still reeling from Japan's surprise attack on Pearl Harbor as the Japanese fleet was running amok in and around the Java Sea. Within months, Japan had occupied most of Southeast Asia.... More > Flushed with "victory disease," the Imperial Japanese Army decided to go after Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea, and asked the Japanese Navy for help in occupying the port. The IJA also wanted the IJN to seize control of the nearby Coral sea, and as a follow-up, to clear the waters around Guadalcanal of Allied ships. The consequent Battle of Coral Sea resulted in a strategic victory for the U.S. in that it thwarted the Japanese plan to occupy Port Moresby, and the failure of Japan's massive fleet to occupy Midway a few months later meant Japan would have to shrink her outer defense perimeter. It also meant that Japan's grandiose expansion plans came to a grinding halt, and that prospects for a victorious war were beginning to quickly fade.< Less
