Storm over Iraq : air power and the Gulf War by Richard Hallion( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and held by 1,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Storm Over Iraq is an incisive account of the Persian Gulf War, which marked a revolution in military history: the ascendancy of air power in warfare. This book - the first detailed analysis of why the Gulf War could be fought the way it was - examines the planning and preparation for war, showing how the success of Desert Storm was the product of two decades of profound changes in the American approach to defense, military doctrine, and combat operations. Richard P. Hallion argues that the development of radical military technologies, particularly those of stealth and precision-guided weapons, enabled military leaders to structure a campaign that shattered Iraq's military machine, completely fulfilling the promise that air power had held for more than seventy-five years

Silver wings, golden valor : the USAF remembers Korea( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To some people, the Korean War was just a "police action," preferring that euphemism to what it really was -- a brutal and bloody war involving hundreds of thousands of air, ground, and naval forces from many nations. It also was termed a "limited war," in that it took place in a small region of the world versus the worldwide conflict that had ended less than five years earlier. But this "police action," this "limited war," cost an estimated 2.4 million military casualties on both sides, while at least another 2 million civilians also were casualties. The United States military alone suffered 33,742 killed and another 103,234 wounded. The war in the air was as bloody and violent as that on the ground. The United Nations air forces lost 1,986 aircraft, with the U.S. Air Force sustaining 1,466 of these. Air Force personnel casualties totaled 1,841, including 1,180 dead. These losses were far greater than can be accounted for in the glib terms "police action" and "limited war." As the years passed following the end of the war, Korea receded in memory. Another war -- in Southeast Asia -- became lodged in the public's mind, and the Korean War became "forgotten." But to those veterans and historians alike participating in the proceedings recorded in this volume, their reminiscences and perspectives provide the reader with compelling arguments why the Korean War deserves to be remembered
