The Role of Airpower in the Iran-Iraq War

Air University Press, Maxwell AFB, AL --

Book Cover - The Role of Airpower in the Iran-Iraq War
The Role of Airpower in the Iran-Iraq War
In this book, Major Bergquist examines the air war between Iran and Iraq. Rather than simply describing what happened in the war, it attempts to discern why Iran and Iraq used their airpower as they did. It shows how the combatants value airpower, what aspects of airpower appear most important to Iranian and Iraqi national leaders, and how their values and needs led them to use airpower in ways quite apart from Western professional expectations. The results highlight considerations that affect the use of airpower by third world nations. [Ronald E. Bergquist / 1988 / 108 pages / ISBN: 1-58566-023-X / AU Press Code: B-25]
