Summary:
The life of Kenneth Walker spanned most of the first half of this century. It was a time of enormous change everywhere; in some ways even greater than the changes we have seen in the last half. Before we move on to Martha Byrd's examination of his life, we will here attempt to set Walker, the Air Corps Tactical School, the Army's Air Corps, and the Army itself in the context of those times.
