The failures of armies, navies, and even entire nations have been well documented by historians. Air forces, however, have received little attention. "Why Air Forces Fail" examines several air forces that have suffered defeat and explains the complex, often deep-seated foundations for these catastrophes. The contributors to "Why Air Forces Fail" consider cases of Russian, Polish, French, British, Italian, German, Argentine, and U.S. air force defeats, looking beyond purely military factors to explore the cultural, political, and technical causes of failure. The book includes both overviews and analytical narratives that examine more than the aerial battlefield, and each case concludes with reading lists and suggestions for further research. "Why Air Forces Fail" is a much-needed and long-overdue addition to military and aeronautical history.
