Ensuing chapters consider the literature on each of the participating countries. The broader subjects of the war at sea and the war in the air are also covered. Daniel Beaver's final chapter discusses the mobilization of industry and the new military technology.

Why air forces fail : the anatomy of defeat by Robin Higham( Book )

"Why Air Forces Fail examines the complex, often deep-seated reasons for the catastrophic failures of the air forces of various nations. Higham and Harris divide the air forces into three categories of defeat: forces that never had a chance to win, such as Poland and France; forces that started out victorious but were ultimately defeated, such as Germany and Japan; and finally, those that were defeated in their early efforts yet rose to victory, such as air forces of Britain and the United States."--Jacket

Dictionary of contemporary Chinese military history by Larry M Wortzel( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracking the evolution of the Red Army through the war against Japan and the Chinese civil war, Wortzel's book provides a comprehensive basic reference focusing on the major events, people, and issues that have produced the historical legacy of the People's Liberation Army. Placing contemporary Chinese military history in the context of China's 19th century clashes with the West and Japan, Wortzel illustrates how the imposition of unequal treaties by foreign powers conditioned China's 20th century defense forces and actions and explains how the Communist military forces developed. It also show
Two roads to war : the French and British air arms from Versailles to Dunkirk by Robin Higham( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two Roads to 1940 is a comparative study of the French and British air arms, from 1918 to 10 May 1940. Higham seeks the answer to the question "Why was the Armée de l'Air defeated in June 1940 whereas the Royal Air Force won the Battle Over Britain in September?"To reach a conclusion, the structure, the men and matériel, the government, and the economic infrastructure were analyzed. The story reveals that the French, dominated by the Armée de l'Terre, was hypnotized by "1918"; in contrast, the independent RAF evolved in the interwar years into a sophisticated, scientifically based force, whic
The influence of airpower upon history : statesmanship, diplomacy, and foreign policy since 1903 by Robin Higham( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From early zeppelins, to the Luftwaffe and the Enola Gay, to the unmanned aerial vehicles of today, air power has long been regarded as an invaluable instrument of war. However, nations have employed aircraft for many other purposes as well; they provide security and surveillance, and they are vital to myriad diplomatic and humanitarian efforts. Air power has become a means for statesmen to advance a variety of goals, opening up new possibilities and problems in times of peace as well as war. The Influence of Air Power upon History examines the many ways in which aviation technology has impacted policymaking since 1903. It analyzes air strategy in nations around the world and explores how a country's presumed technological capability, or lack thereof, has become a crucial aspect of diplomacy. Together, the essays in this insightful volume offer a greater understanding of the history of military force and diplomatic relations in the global community. - Publisher
Speedbird : the complete history of BOAC by Robin Higham( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1939 and 1946 BOAC (the British Overseas Airways Corporation) was the nationalized airline of Great Britain -- and between 1946 and 1974 as such it exclusively operated all long-haul British flights. With its iconic 'Speedbird' logo and its central role in the glamorous More ... 'jet age' of the 1950s and 1960s, BOAC achieved a near cult-status. Yet, to date there has been no comprehensive history of the organization, covering its structure, fleet and the role it played in the critical events of the age -- from World War II to the end of empire, a period when BOAC played a pivotal part in projecting British political power, even as that power was waning. Acclaimed historian Robin Higham here presents a complete study of BOAC from the early days before jet travel to the de Havilland Comet and the Vickers VC10 to the dawn of supersonic passenger aviation. Highly illustrated and meticulously researched, this book will be essential reading for all aviation enthusiasts and anyone interested in the history of modern Britain and the Empire
