Leading experts examine the air war in the context of modern industrialised societies and compare the different ways in which it was conducted by the main air powers. They demonstrate that the relationship between civilians and the military had as much impact on the conduct of the air war as the leadership. The authors cover a wide spectrum and focus on topics such as: > air war and foreign and domestic policies; > top echelon command and leadership; > strategic planning, air armament and war economy; > operations and logistics; > intelligence and reconnaissance; and> air war, humanity and international law.
