Airhead Operations - Where AMC Delivers: The Linchpin of Rapid Force Projection

By Cirafici, Lt. Col. John L

Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama,: Air University Press, 1995. Paperback. Very Good/No Jacket. Trade Paperback in Near Fine Condition. Winner of the Air Force Historical Foundation's 1994 Colonel James Cannell Memorial Award. Trace wear to front corners, otherwise cover in blues with illustration of an aircraft is quite clean, unmarked, no creases; soundly bound; illustrations of charts, diagrams, tables. Pages as new--crisp, white, clean, unmarked, no creases. Colonel Cirafici provides a clear picture of theater air mobility forces structure, their capabilities, and limitations. He has identified problem areas and recommended improvements. If I understand this correctly, the credible force projections have become more important since the downsizing of US military forces and their return to the Continental US have placed increased emphasis on rapidly and effectively moving operations from the US to the operational theater. 92 pages. 9.5 x 6.75 inches. Air University Press, Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, 1995.
