AIR POWER AT THE BATTLEFRONT:
                                   ALLIED CLOSE AIR SUPPORT IN EUROPE 1943-45

by Ian Gooderson





This book examines the role and effectiveness of aviation in direct support of ground operations in North-West Europe during WWII. The author addresses fundamental questions of whether air resources in the close support role provided sufficient advantage at the battlefront to justify the effort and risk to pilots and aircraft. Did air support prove to be of more value and more cost effective, when directed upon interdiction targets behind the lines, such as German communications, transport and supplies?
