John Schlight (au). The issue of close air support by the U.S. Air Force in support of, primarily, the U.S. Army has been fractious for years. Air commanders have clashed continually with ground leaders over the proper use of aircraft in the support of ground operations. Often this has turned into a competition between the two services for resources to execute & control close air support operations. This volume, issued by the Air Force History & Museums Program, looks at the period 1946-1973, a period in which technological advances in the form of jet aircraft, weapons, communications, & other electronic equipment played significant roles. Doctrine evolved as well, & this very important subject is discussed in detail. B&W photos.
