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

18 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 2,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

"Ninety years ago, Canadians defined who they were based on their region, province, culture and ethnic communities. Our national identity was little more than a vague notion. At that time, when Canada was still carving out its place on the world stage, our country was called to fight alongside the Allies during the First World War. History would remember the victories and courage of our soldiers, but if there was one battle that would forge our national identity, it was the Battle of Vimy Ridge"--Page [10]
