Bernhard Schriever, Moral Courage, and the Birth of the Space Age

At a time when the nation’s Air and Space Forces are looking toward innovation as an imperative means of maintaining their effectiveness, it is worth some study of Schriever, arguably the most innovative leader in the history of the Air Force and the creator of what has now become the U.S. Space Force.
