Douhet and Aerial Warfare

By Louis A. Sigaud

Putnam, 1941, 134 pp.

Giulio Douhet, a general in the Italian Army who died in 1930, is generally credited with having formulated the strategy and tactics of the all-out aerial attack that the Germans have been using with such success. In this little book a former American intelligence officer explains Douhet's teachings and traces their influence on modern warfare.
