Air Campaign: John Warden and the Classical Airpower Theorists By David R. Mets
1999 | 97 Pages | ISBN: 1585660639 | PDF | 2 MB

Mets also addresses whether "the argument that antedated the Gulf War to the effect that such conflicts between states using conventional weapons and methods are a pressing phenomenon."
