Author Warrren Kozak joined me tonight to discuss his exceptional biography LeMay: The Life And Wars Of General Curtis LeMay.
Like most Americans, I had no idea what a significant man Lemay was in 20th century aviation and warfare. This book also serves as a mini case study in management techniques because Lemay was masterful in building large organizations, fostering open dialog and earning the trust of those he commanded. I highly recommend this book.
"The firebombing of Tokyo, the Strategic Air Command, John F. Kennedy, Robert S. McNamara, Dr. Strangelove and George Wallace. All of these have one common link -- General Curtis LeMay, who remains as enigmatic and controversial today as he was during his life.
Warren Kozak traces the trajectory of America's most infamous military commander who killed more civilians than any other man in U.S. history but had a profound impact on winning World War II and the Cold War.
