To War on Tubing and Canvas : A Case Study in the Interrelationships between Technology, Training, Doctrine and Organization

By Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan C. Noetzel, USAF


Description
The study reviews each force’s combat glider experience and analyzes it in light of the glider doctrine, or lack thereof, with which each began the war. While military cargo gliders have seen their day, recent technological advances in gliders make them a viable platform for certain missions requiring stealth and silence.
