In February 1918, as Chief of Air Service, First Corps, he had argued that the first mission of offensive air power must be the destruction of the enemy’s air force. Thereafter, bombing operations “should be essentially tactical in their nature and directed against active enemy units in the field which will have a direct bearing on operations during this Spring and Summer, rather than a piecemeal attack against large factory sites and things of that nature. ”66 Although after the war Mitchell berated Pershing’s staff for “trying to handle aviation as an auxiliary of some of the other branches, instead of an independent fighting arm,”67 such criticisms during the conflict were infrequent.
Twenty-one minutes after the first two-thousand-pound bomb fell, the Ostfriesland sank. Mitchell hovered over the battleship during the attack at an altitude of three thousand feet, five hundred feet above his bombers. From among the flotilla of vessels observing the tests he now picked out the Henderson, the Navy transport filled with admirals, generals, congressmen, and foreign dignitaries, and dived to within two hundred feet of the craft. Grinning widely, he doffed his goggles and helmet and waved his arms to the cheers of many of those on deck.
Mitchell was an apt choice to serve as the messiah of American air power. With a United States senator for a father and a 38 progressive prophecy railroad tycoon grandfather, he possessed ties to leaders in both government and industry. World War I provided him with considerable experience as a combat air commander, and he had excelled at it—most of the pilots who flew in his units adored him. Brimming with confidence in any situation, he could charm most audiences, often by relying on his fluent French or his expert polo.
