The Pointblank Directive - L Douglas Keeney

The Pointblank Directive by L Douglas Keeney carefully reconstructs the events in the air war that led up to D-Day while painting an in-depth portrait of the lives and times of General Henry H. "Hap" Arnold, General Carl A. "Tooey" Spaatz and General James "Jimmy" Doolittle. Where was the Luftwaffe on D-Day? Historians have debated that question for six decades, but in 2010 a formerly classified World War II D-Day history was restored, and in it were a new set of answers. Pointblank is the result of extensive new research using that newly restored history to create a richly textured portrait of air power and leadership, and perhaps the last untold story of D-Day: Three uniquely talented men and why, on the single most important day to the survival of the Third Reich, the German Air Force was unable to mount a single effective combat mission against the invasion forces.
