Includes two new chapters! ';One of the more interesting and better books on military aviation to appear in the last few years.'Journal of Military History Since the publication of the first edition of Why Air Forces Fail, the debate over airpower's role in military operations has only intensified. Here, eminent historians Robin Higham and Stephen J. Harris assemble a team of experts to add essential new details to their cautionary tale for current practitioners of aerial warfare. Together, the contributors examine the complex, often deep-seated, reasons for the catastrophic failures of the Russian, Polish, French, British, Italian, German, Argentine, and American air services. Complemented by reading lists and suggestions for further research, this seminal study with two new chapters provides an essential and detailed analysis of defeat. ';Contains many interesting insights and interpretations . . . an excellent introduction to the study of military failure in general and air forces in particular.'Journal of America's Military Past ';I recommend this book to those who are interested in air forces and air power, whether amateur or professional, past, present and future.'Richard Cobbold,Bryanston: The Yearbook ';Provides an excellent analysis of the root causes of failure; this engaging study goes far beyond the aerial battlefield to examine the circumstances leading to defeat.'Dennis Drew, Colonel, USAF (Ret.)
