In December, 1941 US Army pilots began hauling passengers and cargo around the Philippines after the Japanese attack on Clark Field, thus beginning one of the most important air force missions of World War II. As America greared up to fight the war, dozens of what came to be known as troop carrier squadrons were activated and equipped, usually with Douglas C-47 and C-53 version of the DC-8 transport. Beginning in New Guinea, US Army troop carrier crews became a crucial part of the effort to turn the tide of war. In Europe troop carrier squadrons supported Army airborne forces and provided logistical support for air force squadrons. During the Battle of the Bulge troop carrier crews kept the 101st Airborne Division supplied. After the war, troop carrier squadrons supplied the besieged city of Berlin. Troop carrier crews supported UN forces in Korea, then supported French efforts in Indochina where their successors would become crucial to US efforts in the 1960s and early 1970s. This is their story.

The Dept. of Defense (DoD) used nearly 700 aircraft, as well as commercial and leased aircraft, to carry about three million troops and 800,000 tons of cargo in support of wartime, peacetime, and humanitarian efforts in 2008. C-5s and C-17s move troops and cargo internationally (strategic airlift) and C-130s are the primary aircraft that moves them within a theater of operation (tactical airlift). Over the next four years, DoD plans to spend about $12 billion to modernize and procure airlifters and is currently studying how many it needs. This report: (1) identifies the status of DoD¿s modernization and acquisition efforts; and (2) determines how well DoD is addressing any capability gaps and redundancies. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables.

Ray Bowers wrote this history during 1969-1977 while assigned to the Office of Air Force History, Wash., DC, where he served as supervisory historian of the Special Histories Branch. This book presents as its principal theme the U.S. Air Force's use of one form of air power, tactical airlift aviation, in a changing limited warfare situation. The book's language and content are tailored for readers belonging to two overlapping groups -- students of war and professional military officers. Several questions are central: how was tactical airlift to perform in Southeast Asia, what was actually achieved, and by what methods? Glossary. 100+ maps and B&W photos.
