Book now in archival sleeve to protect condition. From Wikipedia: fter V-J Day the Historical Office was moved from Intelligence to be a special staff office. The Office approached Wesley Craven and James Cate to oversee the history project. Craven, then a Lieutenant Colonel in the AAF, was on leave from the faculty of New York University. Cate, then a Major, had come to the AAF from the University of Chicago. They agreed on the condition that they would be given a free hand in editorial decisions and access to all pertinent materials, a requirement which they state "has been lived up to in letter and in spirit". The University of Chicago agreed with similar conditions to sponsor and publish the work.The seven volumes are in effect a collection of essays. Craven and Cate recruited 32 authors to write chapters or whole sections and also wrote several chapters themselves. Most of the authors had served in the AAF during the war and had returned to their college and university faculties after it. A few were professional officers with academic training. Craven and Cate note that "They have written as present scholars rather than as former Air Corps officers".Though the series has the appearance of an official history, editors Wesley Craven and James Cate emphasize that is "not an official report in the ordinary sense of that term one to which the Air Staff necessarily subscribes in all its details and final conclusions". ; Volume Three - Europe: Argument to V-E Day January 1944 to May 1945; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 948 pages
