    In some book on warfare or strategy, the forward for a chapter has the example of a sign in a zoo, French I believe. It says something to the effect. "This animal is very dangerous. When provoked it is capable of incredible violence." I thought it was Von Clausewitz, but it's not.

    One of my favorite books is Fly Boys which tells the rest of the story of how owning the air played such a major roll after PH...I never realized there was so much resistance to Mitchell in getting the brass to understand this. What I found most amazing was how we went from design to launch at light speed. I worked in mfg / Mexico for 15 years making wire harnesses & electronic assemblies for consumer, professional, medical, automotive, etc. A new DeWALT cordless circular saw could take a couple years to get from idea to production using auto-cad, emails & all our fancy crap. P51 did it like 3-4 months without even a fax machine!!
