Aviation's use for ground support would, under the force of circumstances, evolve from the tactics established in 1918, and radar would not affect it until late in the war.  The completely automatic pilot is a technical reality.  To appreciate the accomplishments of radar and how they affected the nature of the Page 20 war requires a knowledge of the state of navigation at the opening of the struggle. In 1939 the word 'navigation' usually carried the modifier 'celestial', for it was by observing the stars that sailors and more recently airmen had found their way.

It did not require a lot of imagination to replace the horse with a tractor that could carry sufficient armor to stop bullets.  The Air Force attempted to counter this, as a report from the beginning of the campaign describes: 'The tanks suffered heavily from gun fire, and one of the lessons of the battle was that it was imperative to allocate a special fighting squadron to the Tank Corps in order to develop liaison and offensive plans for dealing with the anti­tank guns in the next attack' [ 19].

That mission was to be strategic bombing.  That they were overruled led to the great disaster for France and Britain in 1940.  He observed and criticized military exercises and gained acceptance into the ruling stratum of British society.  The RAF had to learn—or was it relearn—those lessons over the desert battlefields of North Africa.  There was no American Liddell Hart for naval aviation, but Hart's message was ignored by his own people Page 18 whereas sound naval doctrine emerged from the American cacophony of the 1920s.
