Course: An Introduction to US Air Force History Part 1 (OSH-AIRFRCE)

This two-part semester course surveys the history of the US Air Force from the earliest beginnings of flight through the end of the Cold War, and the first Gulf War. The course progresses chronologically, and includes an overview of evolving technological aviation advancements, organizational changes, aircraft roles and missions, major air-related military operations, and famous personalities associated with Air Force history. The course is broken into two roughly-equal halves, with the Korean War serving as the breakpoint between semesters. Each 2-hour lecture will include two topics, and is intended to be supported by related slides and videos. Optional note-takers will be available for most lectures. A general knowledge of 20th Century world history would be a useful prerequisite for this course.
