Was the U.S. doomed to lose the exasperating struggle in Vietnam--or was it a war that could, and should , have been won? The author draws a grim and frightening picture of what happened, and could happen again. American politicians continue to be enamored with airpower as the ultimate tool of geopolitical persuasion. Hesitant to ''send in the Marines,'' the idea of artfully targeted cruise missiles, smart bombs, and other 'rial exotica holds much appeal. As Commander in Chief Pacific (CINCPAC). Admiral Sharp commanded the air war over North Vietnam from ill beginnings until the middle of 1968. His cogent and provocative analysis of the powers and limitations of airpower are just as relevant today as they were when first published twenty years ago.
