Introduction: My interest in Air Force doctrine was first aroused when I was a sergeant serving as an aerial gunnery instructor in early 1943. When the operational research people revealed that what we were teaching was faulty, I came to realize that the Air Force system for developing doctrine was flawed. The problem continued to interest me and later, after I was commissioned and serving on the faculty of the Industrial College of the Armed Forces, I wrote my book Ideas and Weapons 1 using the experience of the air arm to expound the need for a more systematic procedure for developing doctrine. Because the doctrinal materials I had gathered on World War II were still highly classified, I reverted to World War I to put across my thesis without violating security. My real concern was to contribute to the soon to be established US Air Force in the search for a more effective means of formulating doctrine.
