Thank you for your show. Very thoughtful and enlightening.
Excellent addition to the regular hardcore history feed. Keep them coming Dan and Ben!
Gladwell and revisionist history
I'm a bit surprised Dan did not challenge Malcolm Gladwell at all regarding his extremely flawed book, the Bomber Mafia. It is obvious Gladwell knows nothing of aviation by saying something like a ferocious tail wind was needed for the heavily loaded B-29 to take off. That would only work if the wings were on backwards. So this leads me to think Dan isn't as up on his history as one might think. Gladwell's book is revisionist history at its worst, and Dan should have challeneged Gladwell's flawed thesis and conclusions.
