Air Power and Strategy: Challenges for the 21st Century
12-13 June 2008
Conference at the Joint Services Command and Staff College, Shrivenham
The aim of this conference is to bring together in one forum the leading international Air power practitioners and academics, and wider Service and governmental parties interested in the utility of Air Power, across the full spectrum of human endeavour, from war fighting to humanitarian relief operations.
- Colonel John Warden USAF (Ret’d) – Keynote speaker
- AVM Professor Tony Mason – School of Social Sciences, University of Birmingham
- Dr Phil Meilinger – former Dean of the USAF School of Advanced Air Power Studies
- Professor Mark Clodfelter – US National War College
- Dr Jim Corum – US Army Command and General Staff College
This looks like an excellent line-up. I have a great deal of time to listen to Air Vice Marshal Tony Mason whose views on recent developments in air power are avidly sought in defence colleges. I also very much liked Corum’s sensible book on Air Power in Small Wars.
