Craft, Stephen G.
Embry-Riddle at War: Aviation Training during World War II.Trade Paperback. Gainesville, FL: University Press Of Florida, 2009. First printing, thus. New.
Fine softcover in pictorial wrappers. New & unread. During the years of World War II, the Embry-Riddle Company, operating out of Miami, Florida, was transformed from a small seaplane operation into a major organization training aircraft technicians and American and British cadet pilots for the war effort. Craft (social science, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical U.) chronicles that transformation in this military organizational history. He is principally interested in documenting how the transformation occurred, due both to company leadership and US government policy, and the contribution of Embry-Riddle to Allied victory in the war, but also includes discussion of the social experiences of the pilots and technicians trained in Embry-Riddle programs and the impact of Embry-Riddle on Florida history.
