Supreme Headquarters, Allied Expeditionary Force. This is a real-life term for the organization of forces who planned and executed the D-Day landings and then the western front of the European Theater from there on. Historically, I don't believe General LeMay was a part of SHAEF, though he (and every other military asset in the UK) would have been on tap for the actual landings. However, considering that in the Strike Witches world, the enemy is mainly air-bound instead of ground-bound, I would guess that the air war holds the same relative importance as the ground war did in our world, and so LeMay would probably be fairly high up in the foodchain.
