Airpower I (AP 1)
Capabilities and Limitations in the Command of Airpower
​Academic Year 2021

AP1 examines the emergence and development of airpower from the First World War through the early 1970s. It analyzes the development of key ideas, capabilities, organizations, practices, and limitations that framed the conduct of air warfare in the first three-quarters of the twentieth century. These landmark case-studies in the application of airpower continue to inform debates about airpower’s purpose, utility, and effectiveness. This course will allow students to comprehend the historical development of airpower and the organizational DNA of the United States Air Force. Course readings, lectures, and seminar discussions will cultivate adaptive leaders and critical airpower thinkers by challenging officers to examine the evolution of airpower and how it fulfills national security outcomes.
