Oswald Boelcke : Germany's first fighter ace and father of air combat by Richard G Head( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oswald Boelcke was Germany's first ace in World War One with a total of forty victories. His character, inspirational leadership, organizational genius, development of air-to-air tactics and impact on aerial doctrine are all reasons why Boelcke remains an important figure in the history of air warfare. Paving the way for modern air forces across the world with his pioneering tactics, Boelcke had a dramatic effect on his contemporaries. The fact that he was the Red Baron's mentor, instructor, squadron commander and friend demonstrates the influence he had upon the German air force. He was one of the first pilots to be awarded the famous Pour le Mérite commonly recognized as the 'Blue Max'. All of this was achieved after overcoming medical obstacles in his childhood and later life with a willpower and determination. Boelcke even gained the admiration of his enemies. After his tragic death in a midair collision, the Royal Flying Corps dropped a wreath on his funeral, and several of his victims sent another wreath from their German prison camp. His name and legacy of leadership and inspiration live on, as seen in the Luftwaffe's designation of the Tactical Air Force Wing 31 'Boelcke'. In this definitive biography RG Head explores why Oswald Boelcke deserves consideration as the most important fighter pilot of the 20th century and beyond; but also for setting the standard in military aviation flying."--Publisher information

USAF Academy Risk Analysis Study Team( )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study investigates a method of reducing cost growth and improving quality in the weapon system acquisition process. It investigates a new management process, 'formal risk analysis.' Risk is the probability that a project will not be completed within specified time, cost and performance constraints by following a specified course of action. Risk assessment is an estimate of the risk associated with a particular course of action. Risk management is the generation of alternative courses of action for reducing risk. Risk analysis is the larger process of combining risk assessment and risk management in order to examine factors affecting the risk of acquiring a system. It is the purpose of the study to identify what a risk analysis is, how it can be accomplished, who should accomplish it and where it fits in the management structure for weapons systems acquisition
