His dreams took him into the skies when aviation was in its infancy. His vision helped propel America to victory in World War II.
He learned how to fly from Orville Wright and was the first person ever to deliver U.S. mail by air. His vision helped make the U.S. Air Force into one of the most effective fighting forces on earth.
Henry Harley Arnold, better known as "Hap," is the father of the U.S. Air Force. One of aviation's pioneers, he entered the military with his vision already clear he would lead America to dominance in the skies. He did, eventually becoming one of only nine men to receive permanent five-star rank. BIOGRAPHY® traces the life and career of this legendary warrior through interviews with men who served alongside him, rare footage, photos and expert commentary. See how "Hap" transformed the Army Air Corps from a bad joke to a devastating force by identifying and nurturing leaders like Spaatz and Doolittle, developing new weapons and inventing tactics that remain essential to U.S. military strategy to this day. Interviews with family and friends reveal the private man, while his many military triumphs are relived through newsreel and archival footage.
It's a stirring portrait of one of the greatest leaders in military history.
