Educational Reference Publication

Preface: Should air power be controlled by a single commander, or should such control be split among the various services? Advocates on both sides argue that they favor unity of command. Yet, one side must be right and the other wrong-or are they both correct? Air Power?s Gordian Knot is my attempt to answer this question. Oftentimes, personal experience shades one?s view of history, so I believe I must admit mine up front. As a fighter pilot and engineer, I have attained some expertise in aerial combat, electronic combat, and air-to-ground attack. Although I do not have the experience of a warrior dedicated to close air support (CAS)--a mission of particular importance to my topic--I did fly CAS for a year in the F-4D and know both the frustration and exhilaration of performing one of the most difficult of air power tasks.
