2 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Second World War proved not to be the war to end all wars, and air power has had plenty of opportunity to demonstrate its strengths and weaknesses in the numerous conflicts which have so troubled the post 1945 world. First out, air power played a major part in the 45 years of cold war between the Capitalistic and Democratic West and the Communist Eastern bloc, with a manned bomber providing one-arm of the nuclear triad. The aircraft of both sides constantly probed each others airspace to test the defenses. And this period also saw conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf, with the accompanying expansion of aerial operations

The campaign so reduced the combat efficiency of the Iraqi forces in Kuwait, that the collation ground offensive achieved its aim in a mere four days with the very minimum of casualties
