"This book makes one think about how to generate change in a defence environment where funding is extremely limited. It also reveals how significant efforts can be made to improve survivability instead of just accepting the claims of a new wonder weapon. The work also makes one think about the contemporary discussion over what resource priorities Australia needs to allocate to air-sea operations and whether it resides largely within the RAN or the RAAF should not matter. "Billy Mitchell's War with the Navy" is well worth a read. I suggest it will go well with a glass of wine and a comfy chair so that one can contemplate the alternative futures of Australian naval aviation and air-sea operations."--Australian Naval InstituteRezension:
"Thomas Wildenberg accomplished the challenging task of writing a narrative that will appeal equally to both general readers and informed professionals. The book is supported with meticulous notes, an extensive bibliography, and highly useful appendices. Mitchell's passion, intelligence, and recklessness clearly emerge from the book's pages, as does the U.S. naval leadership's frustration with and animosity towards this high-energy proponent of an independent U.S. Air Force." "--Naval History Book Reviews"
