Abstract : The author discusses the need for airpower since the end of the cold war. The contributions of airpower in the Gulf raised new questions about the relationship of air and landpower as airmen produced evidence to support the contention that the proper role of landpower is consolidation of the gains made by airpower. The truth is probably not so extreme, but there is no doubt that leaders charged with developing and applying land-based military power must now have a deep understanding of airpower or, more accurately, aerospace power. Dennis M. Drew's study is a valuable contribution to this sort of understanding. He builds his analysis on three vital questions: first, who or what is the enemy? Second, what will be airpower's role in meeting the enemy's challenge to U.S. interests? Third, what must airmen do to prepare for that threat? Gulf war, Nuclear conventional and insurgent warfare, Role of airpower, Joint Operations
