Preface to the Second Edition Archie to SAM is a revised and updated edition of Archie, Flak, AAA, and SAM. For many years, the Air University Press, most especially Tom Lobenstein, has suggested I revise this work. I finally got the opportunity when I served three years in the Airpower Research Institute (ARI) where Col Al Howey and Dr. Jim Titus helped clear the way. My ?boss,? Dr. Dan Mortensen, and two other colleagues, Dr. Lee Dowdy and Tom Searle, helped in many more ways than they realized. My coworkers in ARI, especially such computer people as Guy Frankland and La Don Herring, made things much easier. As with the original study, the extremely capable staff at the Air University Library (particularly Steve Chun, Diana Simpson, and Edith Williams) and the Historical Research Agency (with special thanks to Joe Caver and Archie DiFante) were extremely helpful. Bud Bennett at Radford University was very important to this work. I also want to thank the talented staff at Air University Press who made this project possible. Especially important were Dr. Richard Bailey, who demonstrated great competence and patience, and Carolyn J. McCormack, who saved me from numerous embarrassing mistakes. In addition, as always my faithful wife Jeanne helped both directly with typing and editing--and understanding.
