    Air Power Theory was “warmly embraced” prior to the full translation of Douhets The Command of the Air and this embracement went far beyond military thinkers. The out break of the Second World War cannot be solely blamed on its influence, however, the theory certainly guided Britain’s decision making through the critical stages of the.   The success of air power in the Persian Gulf War has led some to consider it as a "revolution" in military technology, one that holds out the possibility of war meted out in fine increments and perhaps even bloodless battles.

    Bancroft Prize winner "Sherry has given us more than just a major contribution to the literature about air power and World War Two. His real subject is nothing less than the destructiveness of our modern age."—John W. Dower, author of War Without Mercy: Race and Power in the Pacific War This book offers an in-depth history of American strategic bombing. Warfare in the first half of the 20th century was fundamentally and irrovocably altered by the birth and subsequent development of air power. This work assesses the role of air power in changing the face of battle on land and sea. Utilizing lates research, the author demonstrates that the phenomenon of air power was both a cause and a crucial accelerating factor contributing to the theory.

    This book is a very comprehensive and authoritative account of the birth and the growth of the U.S. air forces. This is the best book I have read on this topic, and the work is so detailed and encompasses all aspects of the evolution of air power from the first theorists of what air warfare would entail to creation of a separate branch of the military for the Air Force to what the future may. that it can kill only what it can see, identify, and engage. Air power and intelligence are thus opposite sides of the same coin. If the latter fails, the former is likely to fail also. For that reason, accurate, timely, and comprehensive information about an enemy and his military as-sets is not only a crucial enabler for allowing air power to.
