Id have to say AF General Curtis LeMay. This man was very contraversial..effective at establishing the US as a global super power with his formation of the Strategic Air Forces...but very hard on the way he did it.
Look at some of this mans quotes in the AF quotes group..and you'll see how he stated what he believed in.
If we should have to fight, we should be prepared to do so from the neck up instead of from the neck down. General James H. Doolittle, USAAF
