War from Above the Clouds B-52 Operations During the Second Indochina War and the Effects of the Air War on Theory and Doctrine

By: William P. Head

...he air war affected airpower doctrine and theory. His study examines the evolution of this awesome manned strategic weapon in Vietnam to see how the design of the B-52s originally intended mission altered—if at all—the theories of airpower first put forward by Giulio Douhet and William “Billy” Mitchell. Dr. Head also analyzes how this same operational alteration affecte...
