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.

This is a list of United States Army Air Forces B-24 Liberator combat units during World War II including variants and other historical information. Heavy bomber training organizations primarily under II Bomber Command in the United States and non-combat units are not included. The USAAF took delivery of its first B-24As in June 1941, although the B-24D was the first production model delivered in quantity in July 1942.

This book is concerned primarily with the combat (or tactical) groups that were active during the Second World War. Although such groups had numerous designations, nearly all fell within four major categories: bombardment, fighter, reconnaissance, and troop carrier. It does not deal with provisional organizations or with air base, maintenance, supply, medical, transport, and other service or support organizations. 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.

This is an unbelievably sloppy, inaccurate book. My father was a B-29 Central Station Fire Control System Gunner and Instructor. He was stationed at Pyote Army Air Force Base and Harvard Army Air Base near Harvard, Nebraska. After being injured in a training accident, he was hospitalized at the Sioux City Army Air Base for 6 months before finishing out his his AAF career as a Sargent Major. I have his service records and I have most relevant books about those bases, B-29 training and combat, and B-29 crew memoirs. I am quite familiar with the units histories of the units that were stationed at Pyote Army Air Base and Harvard Army Air base. This includes the 19th Bombardment Group, 315th Very Heavy Bombardment, and 313th Very Heavy Bombardment Wing. My father was was an instructor in the later two Wings at Harvard Army Air Field. Those two wings have a nonsensical unit history, that has the wrong aircraft, leaves out the Harvard AA Base, where my father helped train them, has nonsensical duty, and has them being disbanded in 1943. Both units flew B-29 Bombers from Guam in 1945 in critical and dangerous missions over Japan. These were not small units. Each had 12,000 air crews, ground crews and support staff. They served with distinction. The 19th Bombardment Group History was just as screwed up with wrong aircraft, missing stateside bases, and ignored their participation in the bombing of Japan in 1945. My father was there when these units were stationed at Pyote and Harvard Army Air Bases. Given that the 3 units that my father was on base with or attached to had totally screwed up histories that were grossly inaccurate, one can only assume that the book must be loaded with more nonsense and fictional unit histories.

The title of the book is more fiction. The US Air Force did not exist until 1946. Prior to that it was the US Army Air Force.

This in an excellent book for researching Combat units in WWII. It gives you information on where the units were based,who they were commanded by, what Squadrons were in which Groups and campaigns they were involved in. There is a short written narrative on the types of missions flown. A must have research aid. It is used by Air Force Historians as reference material.
