Allies in Air Power

A History of Multinational Air Operations

In the past century, multinational military operations have become the norm; but while contributions from different nations provide many benefits—from expanded capability to political credibility—they also present a number of challenges. Issues such as command and control, communications, equipment standardization, intelligence, logistics, planning, tactics, and training all require consideration. Cultural factors present challenges as well, particularly when language barriers are involved.

In Allies in Air Power, experts from around the world survey these operations from the birth of aviation to the present day. Chapters cover conflicts including World War I, multiple theaters of World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, Kosovo, the Iraq War, and various United Nations peacekeeping missions. Contributors also analyze the role of organizations such as the UN, NATO, and so-called "coalitions of the willing" in laying the groundwork for multinational air operations.

While multinational military action has become commonplace, there have been few detailed studies of air power cooperation over a prolonged period or across multiple conflicts. The case studies in this volume not only assess the effectiveness of multinational operations over time, but also provide vital insights into how they may be improved in the future.

Reviews

"Although the argument is not new, Allies in Air Power incorporates a number of little-known examples that add substantially to the field of aviation and air power history. This book adds significant input and analysis to the existing field in important and unique ways."—S. Mike Pavelec, author of War and Warfare since 1945

"This book should be required reading for anyone pondering or responsible for the art and science of organizing and effectively employing international coalitions of air forces in future conflicts. Of particular importance to future air warfare leaders will be the discussions in each case study of the things that tended to hinder effective coalition building—differing political mandates, lack of pre-conflict interactions, and differing levels of training, doctrines, and equipage—and the things that broke down those barriers—personal relationships among senior commanders, shared strategic interests, and common military and national cultures and language."—Robert Owen, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Colonel, USAF (Ret.)

"In the last few years, serious scholarly attention has been devoted to the potential and problems of multilateral military operations. Allies in Air Power is an insightful collection of essays outlining the history of multilateral air operations since the First World War. It fills an important gap in the literature on the subject and will be of great use to many scholars and students with an interest in military history and strategic studies."—Bettina Renz, professor of international security at the University of Nottingham
