Written in Following some near accidents and the loss of several friends, Arnold quit flying for three years to accept reassignment with the Thirteenth Infantry in the Philippines. Arnold actively sought a combat assignment but was retained at home as assistant executive officer of the newly formed Office of Military Aeronautics.
By February he was assistant director. Arnold finally arrived in France shortly after the armistice and spent several months inspecting and evaluating aerial facilities.
24th Fighter Squadron
The interwar years were a period of growth and controversy for military aviation, and Arnold was at the forefront of events. He received numerous assignments along the Pacific Coast, where he pioneered air patrolling of forests for the Conservation Corps and in-flight refueling of aircraft. Arnold then expanded his technical acumen between and by attending the Army Industrial College and, from to , the Command and General Staff School. Following a brief tour as chief of the Information Division, Office of the Chief of the Air Corps, he rose to lieutenant colonel in February and then served as commander of March Field, Riverside, California.
Mindful of technological trends, Arnold deliberately cultivated close personal ties with the scientific faculty at the nearby California Institute of Technology. Seeking to expand public awareness of military aviation, he also cooperated closely with the Hollywood film establishment on a number of aerial productions. Convinced of the potential of aircraft in modern war, he authored or coauthored with Ira C. Eaker five books on the subject for young and general audiences. He also oversaw the unsuccessful army attempt to deliver mail in the western air mail zone in , which failed on account of inferior equipment and inadequately trained personnel.
Though the nominal commander, Arnold was absolved of any blame and continued flying. Between 19 July and 20 August of that year he conducted a spectacular flight of ten Martin B bombers on a 5,mile roundtrip flight from Washington to Fairbanks, Alaska, demonstrating the potential for strategic bombing. For this feat he received his second Mackay trophy. In January he was recalled to Washington as assistant chief of the Air Corps. He served in this capacity until September , when he rose to major general to succeed General Oscar Westover, who had died in a crash, as chief.
His title changed to chief of the Army Air Force in July , and in this capacity he was a spokesman for army aviation at the Atlantic Charter Conference, Argentia, Newfoundland, in August, He rose to lieutenant general in December Arnold, by virtue of his technological expertise and industry wide contacts, was ideally positioned to orchestrate production increases. Under his aegis the Army Air Forces mushroomed from 22, men and 3, aircraft to 2.
He also addressed and resolved issues of close-air support, long-range escort fighters, and creation of a worldwide air transport net. Furthermore, as these assets were deployed, Arnold strove tirelessly to ensure they were utilized effectively.
In May he flew to London to confer with high-ranking British airmen to develop and coordinate air offensive strategy against Germany. Foremost among his concerns was retention of daylight, precision bombing for American forces instead of less costly but less accurate nighttime air bombing, as practiced by the Royal Air Force. For the next three years Arnold represented American air interests at all major Allied conferences with the exceptions of Washington in and Yalta in , when he was sidelined by heart ailments.
