Introduction: On 3 March 1943, Fifth Air Force aircraft engaged, sank, and halted a critical reinforcement convoy en route to Lae, New Guinea, in the Battle of Bismarck Sea. 1 In October 1973, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) acting in con-junction with defensive efforts of the Israeli army halted a Syrian assault on the Golan Heights. 2 At the end of February 1991, the United States Air Force (USAF) and the US Army (USA) failed to halt the escape of several Iraqi Republican Guard (RG) divisions from the Kuwaiti theater of operations (KTO). This study examines these three efforts by airpower to halt either the advance or retreat of significant ground formations in order to establish analytical criteria with which to evaluate the USAF?s articulated halt strategy.
