Air University Library Course Support
Airpower 2 (AP2)
Airpower Thought and Application Since Vietnam
Academic Year 2021
AP2 examines the development of airpower from the Vietnam War through the present and future. Picking up from AP1, this course analyzes the key ideas, capabilities, organizations, practices, and limitations that frame the conduct of air warfare in the twenty-first century. The case studies examined in AP2 continue to inform debates about airpower’s purpose, utility, and effectiveness. Course readings, lectures, seminar discussions, and a project will cultivate adaptive leaders and critical airpower thinkers by challenging officers to examine the evolution of airpower and how it serves national security outcomes.
