dc.description.abstract During the period from 1937 -1971 , the United States Marine Corps transformed itself from the amphibious fighting force of the beaches of World War II into the nation's primary force -in -readiness . Much of this transformation was dependent upon its ability to adapt and integrate aviation technology into its organization and warfighting doctrine . The Marine Corps' ability to accomplish this was due in no small measure to the efforts of one of its most prominent aviation officers , General Keith Barr McCutcheon . This dissertation examines not only the contributions of one man to this transformation process but the effect of the process on the organization . It also discusses the forces both intemal and extemal that shaped Marine Corps decisions about the use of technology and the impact of those decisions on the Corps' organization and culture . As a result it is a hybrid history neither fully biography , military or technological history , but a combination of all three which permits a more well rounded examination of how military organizations develop , utilize , and adapt to new technologies . en_US
