About this Item

vii, [1], 55, [1] pages. Figures. Notes. Bibliography. The author was with the School of Advanced Airpower Studies. Lt. Gen. David S. Fadok became Commander and President, Air University, Maxwell Air Force Base. General Fadok was a Rhodes Scholar before earning his pilot wings in 1985. A command pilot with more than 4,000 hours, he flew combat and combat support missions in operations Just Cause, Desert Shield, Desert Storm and Southern Watch. This is a publication of a thesis presented for completion of Graduation Requirements. John Richard Boyd (January 23, 1927 - March 9, 1997) was a United States Air Force fighter pilot and Pentagon consultant, whose theories have been highly influential in the military,business, and litigation. Boyd inspired the Lightweight Fighter program (LWF) that produced the successful General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon and McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet, which are still in use by the United States and several other military powers into the 21st century. John Ashley Warden III (born December 21, 1943) is a retired colonel in the United States Air Force. Warden is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy. His Air Force career spanned 30 years, from 1965 to 1995, and included tours in Vietnam, Germany, Spain, Italy, and Korea, as well as assignments within the continental United States. Warden completed assignments in the Pentagon, was a Special Assistant for Policy Studies and National Security Affairs to the Vice President of the United States, and was Commandant of the Air Command and Staff College. John Warden has been called "the leading air power theorist in the U.S. Air Force in the second half of the twentieth century". He has also been called "one of the most creative airmen of our times./ he is one of America's premier strategic thinkers". His impact on the future of air power in the United States Air Force is still being assessed, but "several distinguished military historians, officers, and other experts have concluded that Warden defined the very terms of reference for the 1991 Desert Storm military strategy and thereby introduced a new approach to the conduct of war".
