Space War!


Some thoughts on Spacepower theory over at 1945…

To be sure, you can have a service without a theory of employment. The Army and the Navy were not particularly well-theorized when they were established, and the Marine Corps remains confusing from a theoretical point of view (as well as from many other points of view). But the United States Air Force definitely was very well-theorized from the start, building upon decades of complex discussion and analysis and the experience of many wars.  Whether or not the US Air Force was a good idea, those who founded it knew what they wanted and knew how they wanted to get it.

I acquired a copy of Bleddyn Bowen’s War in Space literally halfway through writing the column; looking forward to the possibility of a podcast in the not too distant future.
