Victory Through Air Power

Victory Through Air Power is a 1942 book by Alexander P. de Seversky, and a 1943 Walt Disney Technicolor animated feature film based on the book.

de Seversky appeared in the film which was an unusual departure from the Disney animated feature films of the time. The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Music Score of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture, but lost to "The Song of Bernadette".

Appearing less than six months after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 and the United States' entry into World War II, the book was extremely popular, influential, and controversial. Seversky advocated the formation of an independent air force, the development of long-range bombers (meaning an intercontinental range of 3,000 miles or more) and a commitment to strategic use of air power (as opposed to its then-traditional use as cover or support for ground-based operations). His plans implicitly involved diversion of resources away from current war operations.

In the beginning of the Bugs Bunny cartoon with Falling Hare, Bugs is reading "Victory Thru Hare Power," where he reads about the gremlins.
