about this item

During the interwar years, from 1920 to 1940, leaders from the Army Air Corps and the Marine Corps recreated their agencies based on visions of new military technologies. InWar Machines, Timothy Moy examines these recreations and explores how factors such as bureaucratic pressure, institutional culture, and America's technological enthusiasm shaped these leaders' choices.“. . . The clarity of (Moy’s) presentation and thesis make this book an easy and valuable experience.”—Journal of American History“This book’s topic is particularly timely. War Machines offers insights about how institutional behavior molds technology selection that should be of value to today’s strategists and force planners.”—Air Power History“Moy provides the student of American military history with a cogent, articulate, astute, scholarly, and compelling analysis that will prove a greatly appreciated contribution as both a personal study and an academic reference.”—The Midwest Book Review
