Re: September Handgrenade. The Doolittle Raid: How Important?

Walt, I don't think there would be general agreement to a "fact" of the Doolittle raid being a "massive war crime." A number of industrial and military targets were hit, and surely no precedent was set. "Area bombing" in Europe by the RAF was being conducted well before April of 1942, and I think the jury is still out about whether an industrial landscape that encompasses residential neighborhoods ought to be off-limits in warfare.

History of Air Shows

All,

Can anyone recommend to me a book, article, etc. on the history of air shows? I'm looking for an overview (since the early 20th century) and their professionalization since WWII. Since this is not my area of expertise I've exhausted my resources but have probably overlooked a lot.
