One Trick Pony Put Down

Here is the sole item of some interest among Sunday's NYT Book Review items: Questioning America’s Faith in Air Power.

My only reservation is that the book is by Martin van Creveld.  Beschloss's review is worthy, though.

Speaking about mil "experts", it is gratifying to see that folks are finally catching on to some of the more egregious attention whores (need we really provide names?). One-trick ponyism gets really tired when advice keeps costing lives (and the reputation of U.S. military - you can only lose so many wars before the word gets around).

And here's an obit from page A-22 of today's NYT: Violet Cowden, 94; Flew Military Planes for War Effort
