A80167 WWII United States Army Air Forces Pilot – Captain Rafe
The United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) was created on 20 June 1941 as successor to the previous United States Army Air Corps and is the direct predecessor of the United States Air Force. It was the largest military aviation force during World War II. In Europe, the USAAF carried out strategic bombing against Germany and its allies. In the Pacific, the USAAF participated in battles such as the Battle of Midway and the Solomon Islands campaign, and assisted the Allied Forces in victory through island-hopping tactics. In 1947, the USAAF merged with the Naval Air Forces to form the modern U.S. Air Force.
