It was a bit of a struggle to get to the end of this book - but I did it. Only for the hard core military history buff. Very technical, lots of jargon.

Would you try another book from John Andreas Olsen and/or Steve Van Doren?
The subject is interesting, and is clearly & logically laid out - I didn't always agree with the various authors analyses but their arguments are both well informed & well argued. The scholarly tone of the book does make it somewhat dry, which isn't to everyone's taste, but it is clear that this book was never intended to be a collection of anecdotes, and as such was I think well presented.
Would you recommend A History of Air Warfare to your friends? Why or why not?
No! the fatal flaw with this book is in the choice of narrator. The following aspects of his performance served only to irritate me continually throughout the entire book: -
- A smug tone by which he conveyed his obvious delight at the sound of his own voice.
- His inability to pronounce a wide of words accurately or without a degree of pompous over emphasis.
- His seeming boredom at having to read the book at all.
I would not inflict this reading of this book on anyone!
