From Burma to Berlin: The Development of U.S. Air Transport 1938-1949

http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1079&context=historydiss

This thesis was written to fulfill Mr. Johnson’s requirements for his degree in Master of the Arts, with a major in History. Although the RAFFC is not mentioned specifically, it discusses the ferrying route from the US through the Canadian Arctic through Greenland and Iceland. It was uploaded December 2014.

This work examines the development of U.S. military airlift from unproven curiosity to a transformative system of technologies, tactics and logistical support which enabled the United States to engage diplomatic and military scenarios around the world. Through an examination of contemporary reports, technological advances and statistical analyses of airlift practices it is shown that the period of 1938-1949 witnessed a greatleap in tactical and technological innovation within the U.S. air transport community.
