About Book

Colin Powell, My American Journey
"The Air Force staff quickly came up with an air campaign, the brainchild of Colonel John Warden, a brilliant, brash fighter pilot and a leading Air Force intellectual on the use of airpower... Warden's original plan would undergo numerous modifications...but his original concept remained the heart of the Desert Storm air war."

Book Description
Since its original publication The Air Campaign: Planning for Combat has been translated into more than a half dozen languages and is in use at military colleges throughout the world. This book would later serve as the basis for the planning of much of the Gulf War air campaign. Generals Schwarzkopf and Powell credited Col. Warden with creating the air campaign that defeated Iraq in the Gulf War. This new edition includes a new epilogue where Col. Warden has refined and extended many of the ideas presented in the original book. The most significant of these refinements is the development of the theory of the enemy as system-which flows from the center of gravity concepts developed in the first edition. --This text refers to the paperback edition of this title Winner of the Air Force Association's Gill Robb Wilson award as "one of the most influential books of the decade."
