Bentley, Norman S

Tagged: Author

(1867-?   ) US lawyer and author whose Future War novel Armada of the Air (1937) counts as an extremely early Hitler Wins tale, though the emphasis here is more on the governmental fanaticism that has disarmed Great Britain by 1946 than on the four dictators (one of them Hitler by clear inference) who wage war by air (the armada boasts thousands of planes) on their hapless foe.
