Abstract:

This report examines the controversy between the pursuit and bombardment aviation advocates that began following World War I and continued throughout the l930s at the Air Corps Tactical School (ACTS). The purpose of this paper is to analyze the development of the ACTS bomber theory and to review the data available between 1930-1939 that led to the focus on bombardment theory development at the expense of pursuit aviation. The report used primary source data from the Air Force Historical Research Agency and various secondary sources to analyze results of Air Corps training exercises and combat data from overseas conflicts. These sources were used to determine the impact of this data on the development of pursuit and bombardment doctrine and what data, if any, was ignored by the Air Corps and the ACTS in developing their strategic bomber theory. The data analysis illustrates that significant evidence existed that proved pursuit aviation was an effective weapon in defending against attacking bombers and that the concept of bomber invincibility was suspect. The report explains why the Air Corps and ACTS may have ignored some evidence in developing their strategic bombardment doctrine and how the ACTS's experience may benefit future warfighters.
