Cass Series--Studies in Air Power, #14: Airwar; Essays on Its Theory and Practice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These essays cover a wide range of subjects and tell the story of air power's evolution over the past century. The author discusses the golden age of air theory before World War II, examining the ideas of British, American and continental airmen. In the great test of World War II, he covers some of the key roles played by air power in both Europe and the Pacific.<BR>Reviewing the Cold War era, Meilinger relates how airmen had to grapple not only with nuclear war planning, but also the requirement to wage limited wars in Korea and Vietnam. After the fall of the Soviet Union airmen once again had to rethink the role of air power, while also waging decisive air campaigns in Iraq and the Balkans. The final essays deal with the opportunities presented by what is now termed aerospace power, as well as some of the challenges of the new millennium.

Synopsis:

According to the author all aircrews, tacticians and those who direct them have to realise the limitations of air power during conflicts. For years opinion has differed as to whether the aircraft has altered war strategies or merely the tactics of war. This volume explores the limits of airpower.
