Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A revised edition of the Gulf War Air Power Survey Summary Report created by Secretary of the Air Force Donald B. Rice in 1991. Some new text has been added, including a speculative chapter on the future of air power; However comparatively few changes have been made to the original text. The edited survey concentrates on the operational level of the war, not on historical implications: the air campaign, intelligence roles, conditions, and command. Six appendices with graphs and statistical information supplement the text. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
