Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: As a West Point cadet (1903-1907), Augustine Warner Robins numbered among his classmates and friends Hap Arnold and Frank Andrews. As a young officer, he fought under Black Jack Pershing in Mexico and met a young George Patton and Ben Foulois. As a senior officer, he worked with such luminaries of the day as Charles A. Lindbergh, Jimmy Doolittle, Lester Maitland, Orville Wright, and Billy Mitchell. Even more significantly, during his career he was instrumental in developing the first official and workable Air Force supply maintenance and accountability system. He helped establish official guidelines for training of logistics officers, NCOs, and civilians working for the Army Air Corps. Robins's life provides, through his thousands of letters, telephone transcripts, and other primary materials, a unique window on the interwar period, and especially on the history of aviation in America.

Inhaltsangabe: Who was Warner Robins, for whom an Air Force base in Georgia was named? "To write a story about General Robins is to write abut the Olden Days'" his widow has remarked, "for Warner Robins was not in the Air Force as it is today." No, but he helped to form the Air Force as it is today. His professional life developed along with the air service during that brave and daring era between the two World Wars. As author William Head explains, Robins was "one of those courageous few who left an indelible mark on today's Air Force."

As a West Point cadet (1903-1907), Augustine Warner Robins numbered among his classmates and friends Hap Arnold and Frank Andrews. As a young officer, he fought under Black Jack Pershing in Mexico and met a young George Patton and Ben Foulois. As a senior officer, he worked with such luminaries of the day as Charles A. Lindbergh, Jimmy Doolittle, Lester Maitland, Orville Wright, and Billy Mitchell.

Even more significantly, during his career he was instrumental in developing the first official and workable Air Force supply maintenance and accountability system. He helped establish official guidelines for training of logistics officers, NCOs, and civilians working for the Army Air Corps.

Robins's life provides, through his thousands of letters, telephone transcripts, and other primary materials, a unique window on the interward period, and especially on the history of aviation in America. Through his eyes, the events and personalities of the 1920s and 1930s--which shaped the Air Force of World II and the Cold War--come into sharp focus. The anecdotes and sometimes humorous stories of the building of this branch of the service make this a book not just for historians, but for all those interested in the military and in aviation.

Buchbeschreibung Texas A & M University Press, College Station, 1995. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Very Good. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Very Good. First Edition. X, 289 pages, illustrations, cloth, DJ, very good. Stated first edition. From the estate of aviation collector Colin Kidd and with his embossed label. From Wikipedia: "General Augustine Warner Robins (September 29, 1882 - June 16, 1940) is often credited as the Father of Logistics in the modern United States Air Force, then known as the Army Air Corps. He was instrumental in the establishment of the first official and workable Air Force supply maintenance and accountability system, and helped establish official guidelines for the training of logistics officers, NCOs, and civilians working for the Air Force. He is also the namesake of the city of Warner Robins, Georgia. Robins was born in Gloucester Courthouse, Virginia in 1882. His parents were Col. William Todd Robins, the commander of the 24th Virginia Cavalry in the American Civil War, and Sally Berkeley Nelson. Robins was named after his grandfather, Augustine Warner (A. W. ) Robins. A West Point cadet (1903–07) , Robins served under General John Pershing's punitive 1916 expedition into Mexico against Pancho Villa. In 1919, he was sent to the Supply Division of the fledgling Air Service at Wright Field, Ohio, where he spent the next twenty years playing his pivotal role in the development of air-based combat logistics. In 1935, he was promoted to Brigadier General, one of four in the Army Air Corps at that time, and was given command of the Materiel Division at Wright Field; for the next four years, he would push for increased funding for research and development, as well as key technologies such as B-17s, the Norden bombsight, and the high-octane gasoline that would later power the carriers of World War II across the Atlantic and Pacific. In 1939, he was reassigned to the command of the Air Training division in Texas; however, he died from a heart attack in June of the next year. Over a year after his death, the Army Air Corps began to make use of Robins' contributions during its actions in World War II.". Buchnummer des Verkäufers 32663
