I’m flattered that you think so well of my “Deconstructing the P-51 Mustang Historical Narrative” post.
However, it is only part of the story of Hap Arnold and the “Heavy Bomber Mafia” screwing up by the numbers with the assistance of General’s Stilwell and Marshall.

Claire Lee Chennault — SECRET AGENT MAN!

One of the strangest experiences doing historical research is following a trail of research on something you think you…chicagoboyz.net
It has the story of Captain Claire Chennault’s 1933 Ft. Knox air Defense Observer Network. A network that was so successful in catching bombardment formations that Chennault was black balled by the “Bomber Mafia” of two Air Chiefs of Staff. This network was the basis of a human intelligence network Chennault formed in China despite orders forbidding such a service by China-Burma-India senior US commander General Stilwell.
