Course content

Air Power in the Modern World will give students an understanding of military campaigns, operations and security issues from 1945 to the present day, in the light of the wide-ranging economic, social, technological and political changes in the world, with special reference to to the seemingly ubiquitous role of air power in integrated ('joint') contexts. It will equip students to engage critically with scholarly debate about the conduct and nature of contemporary warfare from an air power perspective, and will develop their understanding of the contexts in which military operations take place.
