If It Flies It Dies

Military History

The United States Army Air Defense Artillery

While now a popular boast among American duck hunters "If It Flies It Dies" was once the unofficial motto of the United States Army Air Defense Artillery.  Don's first eBook is a history of this Branch of the United States Army.  From its roots when it first deployed anti-aircraft guns on our shorelines to defend our country against a "new-fangled" weapon called the Areoplane, through its evolution of employing sophisticated anti-aircraft missile systems to do much the same thing.

June 21, 1860.
