This book tells their story. First TACAF was hastily formed in southeastern France to provide air support and cooperation with the Franco-American Sixth Army Group which included the . Seventh Army and the French First Army. Tannehill writes of the many difficulties the provisional air force faced. Its units got few replacements, aircrew had to continue to fly combat missions without relief and many of its ground and support personnel were tiring after being overseas for 24 months. Its aircraft were war-weary. Supplies were hard to get. Bad weather was the worst problem.
Germany and Japan depended on air forces that were closely integrated with land and naval forces; the Axis powers downplayed the advantage of fleets of strategic bombers, and were late in appreciating the need to defend against Allied strategic bombing.
The Australian First Tactical Air Force (No. 1 TAF) was formed on 25 October 1944 by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF). Its purpose was to provide a mobile force of fighter and ground attack aircraft that could support Allied army and naval units fighting the Empire of Japan in the South West Pacific Area. One of several Allied tactical air forces formed during World War II, it evolved from the RAAF's No. 10 Operational Group, established a year earlier.
Although this book is devoted exclusively to organizations that were active during World War II, its coverage of those organizations is not confined to the World War II period. Instead, each organization is traced back to its origin and forward to 1 January 1956, with later activations being mentioned if they took place prior to the time the draft of the book was prepared in 1957-1958. The organizations are presented under the designations they carried on 2 September 1945.

The first task it was given was one that traditionally had been done by the cavalry – scouting the movements of the enemy. Once the front lines had solidified and trench warfare began, airmen mapped the battlefield, spotted for the artillery and clashed with enemy aviators trying to do the same thing. Between 1917 and 1939 the Air Force would move from the periphery to the centre of British military thinking, planning and expenditure. The development was the result of two growth spurts, both of them brought about by fear of German air power. The Royal Air Force itself was conceived in the panicky atmosphere generated by continuing German air raids on Britain.

A look at tactical air operations in World War II illuminates important aspects of coalition warfare and the command and control of airpower. World War II is usually seen as a titanic land battle, decided by mass armies, most importantly those on the Eastern Front. Phillips Payson O’Brien shows us the war in a completely different light. Instead, the record shows that a joint force conception and execution of strategy is what has won wars in the past and will continue to win wars in the future.
AAF doctors, for example, helped design the first flying suits that countered the physiological effects of the excess gravity forces (g-forces) in high-speed maneuvers.
