A CENTURY OF AIR POWER 1912-2012

No other technical development since the introduction of gunpowder has had as great an influence on warfare as the aircraft. From its early beginnings as simply a means of aerial reconnaissance to its utter supremacy on the battlefield, the aircraft has evolved into the most versatile and precise killing machine known to man.

In this wide-ranging and comprehensive study, David Sloggett, an internationally-respected defence analyst, investigates the changing role and increasing significance of air power over the course of the previous 100 years. This is accomplished by detailing every major conflict during that period including not only the two world wars and the recent conflicts in the Middle East but also the Korean War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Falklands War and Russian use of air power in Afghanistan. Air power’s role in Malaya, Oman, Kenya and in Northern Ireland is also explained.

A Century of Air Power is the most important study of the use of military aircraft ever undertaken and as such provides valuable lessons for the future – not only for the commanders who have to apply these all-powerful weapons but also for the politicians who have to determine its use.
