Author: Warren Kozak
Publisher: Regnery History • 2011 • 450 pages

The firebombing of Tokyo. Strategic Air Command. John F. Kennedy. Dr. Strangelove. George Wallace. All of these have one man in common — General Curtis Lemay, who remains as enigmatic and controversial as he was in life.

Until now. Warren Kozak traces the trajectory of America’s most infamous general , from his firebombing of Tokyo, guardianship of the U.S. Nuclear arsenal in the Cold War, frustrated career in government, and short-lived political run. Curtis Lemay’s life spanned an epoch in American military history, from the small U.S. army air corps of the interwar years to the nuclear age.
