Example text

By that time, four aerodromes were in operation and both the army and the navy were beginning to take an active interest in air power. The army developed their Balloon School into an air battalion with 13 aircraft and three airships. Naval air power suffered a setback when a large airship was wrecked before flying, but then received a boost with the appointment of Winston Churchill, an ardent advocate of air power, as First Lord of the Admiralty. Under growing pressure to do more, the government instructed the CID to investigate the role of air power in military and naval operations again.

Their air power development was continually hindered by an interfering political/military leadership which did not understand the requirements of mass-production, and by a decentralized non-integrated economy used neither to political management nor to the necessary adaptability of modern capitalist models. Repeated design changes and shifting specifications saw new aircraft types put back months and eventually produced in a hotchpotch fashion, often resulting in poor rehability and service back-up.

The new totality of war made heavy demands on economies and societies, demands that ultimately only the Allies in the world wars could meet. By using air power to batter and drain Germany and Japan of material and technological resources, the Allies were able to gain significant advantages. The fascist dictatorships were not particularly suited to the demands of total war, and ultimately it was the responsibility of the Allies to use such a form of war to win. Paradoxically, the most effective exponents of air war in the first stages of World War II were the Axis powers themselves, but they sought to use it, along with other new arms, as a way of evading the kind of total war that the Great War had portended.
