Wings at War No. 6, Headquarters, Army Air Forces, Office of Assistant Chief of Staff, Intelligence, Washington, D.C., 1945, Center for Air Force History, Washington, D.C., 1992, 76 pages, 3 photos, 1 cover illustration, 5 maps. This work focuses on the Allied assault on Northwest Africa and the battle for Tunisia—the critical second front that secured the Mediterranean and increased the enemy's vulnerability to a massive invasion from Britain. From this experience of the Twelfth Air Force and its British counterparts in 1942-43 evolved a spirit of Anglo-American cooperation and important aspects of air doctrine still relevant today. Originally published shortly after key air campaigns, the Wings at War series captured the spirit and tone of America's World War II experience. Eyewitness accounts of Army Air Forces' aviators and details from the official histories enlivened the story behind each of six important AAF operations.
