Compare and contrast the main ideas articulated by General Giulio Douhet and Marshall of the RAF Hugh Trenchard General Giulio Douhet was a professional artillery officer in the Italian army. He very quickly recognised the military potential of the aircraft and wrote ‘Rules for the Use of Airplanes in War’ in 1912, this was the first doctrine of its kind. Mussolini appointed Douhet as commissioner of aviation this enabled him to create a vital impact on the development of airpower theories during the inter war period, the theories of which were detailed in his most renowned text, Command of the Air, 1921.

He gained military experience from his time serving as an army officer in the Boer and West Africa, as well as his role as a pilot and head of the Royal Flying Corps in France during World War I.
By the age of six Armstrong was already intrigued by airplanes, and he went on to take his first ride in one 10 years later when he got his pilot license. He was very serious about being a pilot, as he built a wind tunnel (a tunnel through which air is forced at controlled speeds to study the effects of its flow) in his basement in order to test model planes that he had created out. He started with flying lessons at the age of fourteen. But young Armstrong wasn 't only fascinated by airplanes at this age, he was also interested in outer space, a curiosity fueled by his neighbor and friend who possessed a powerful telescope. Using this Armstrong was able to see the stars and the moons, and dream of one day going up into space, a dream that would later be achieved.
Paul Laurence Dunbar is known as one of America’s early and most well-known African American writers. He not only has many published poems, but also short stories, essays, and novels as well. He began writing early in his life, and in 1889 was editor of the Dayton Tattler, a newspaper published by the famed Orville Wright who, with his brother, invented the airplane. Though the newspaper was short lived, for Dunbar to be in such a position as a young African American during this time was a clear sign of his intelligence and talent. In 1899, Dunbar wrote a poem titled Sympathy.
