Discussion and Book Signing | MacArthur’s Air Force: American Airpower over the Pacific and the Far East, 1941–51 by Bill Yenne

February 13 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

General Douglas MacArthur is one of the towering figures of World War II, and indeed of the twentieth century, but his leadership of one of the most powerful air forces in the world is often overlooked. This new history by our favorite Noe Valley historian Bill Yenne traces the development of “MacArthur’s Air Force” from its origins in the Philippines on the eve of World War II, through to its eventual victory in the skies over Japan, as well as the key role played by air power under MacArthur’s command in the Korean War. Join us in welcoming back Bill Yenne and learn about this particularly fascinating time in U.S. history. A Q&A and book signing will follow.
