?[s]uggests that the fundamental debates about the role, impact, and ultimate influence of airpower in modern war may never be finally resolved. In short, when the subject is airpower, it seems clear that we can not arrive at any consensus. Rather, it is by way of our continuing struggle to understand the issue that progress is made. This book clearly adds to the body of argument and is fun to read....[s]hould appeal to the growing coterie of scholars interested in the debate. Can airpower, however transformed by technology and applied by up-to-date doctrine, truly be decisive? Mets and Head's book suggests that the answer to this contentious question is less important than the intellectual investigation itself.??Military History
