The authors of this pathbreaking study argue that bombers and carriers, which have been viewed as competitors for decades, should be used in conjunction with each other to provide American defense planners with unprecedented global reach, flexibility, and responsiveness. Presenting proposals for a more synergistic and cost-effective use of these two highly versatile platforms, Perry, Rothenberg, and Davis show how U.S. military strategy can more effectively deal with the challenges of the post-Cold War world.
