Robert A. Lovett Interview Notes October 14, 1957
Summary of Topics Covered:
Lovett refutes the notion that in the late 1930s Marshall did not appreciate the importance of airpower. It was rather an issue of appropriations. By the early months after the American entry into World War II, Marshall worked to coordinate the Services on the issue of air forces. He states that Marshall loathed the China mission and that the Secretary of State position was a terrible chore for him.
