CBS BIOGRAPHY: BILLY MITCHELL (Black And White, 1964, 23 Minutes)
Largely forgotten nowadays, U.S. Army General Billy Mitchell is a giant of military aviation, and was its first and furthest-seeing visionary. Starting off as the U.S. Army's only pilot in Europe, he soon invented the tactical air support of ground operations that was to become the basis of Second World War mechanized warfare. Conducting thousand plane raids that also foreshadowed such massive armadas being used in World War II, he virtually wrote the book on tactical aerial warfare while fighting old-guard upper brass every step of the way.
