The Bomber In British Strategy Summary

The Bomber In British Strategy: Doctrine, Strategy, and Britain's World Role, 1945-1960 by S.J. Ball

Between 1945 and 1960, Great Britain constructed a substantial nuclear-armed bomber force. The creation of this force had ramifications that extended well beyond the confines of military policy. The process played a large part in defining relations with the United States, and the belief that these bombers could replace conventional forces convinced successive British governments that Great Britain could maintain a significant global military role. Originally published in 1995 and drawing on both archives and oral testimony, this book analyses British strategic discourse and its influence on British foreign policy in the early decades of the Cold War.

The Bomber In British Strategy Reviews

'Ball gives us a sophisticated treatment of the interaction between genuine attempts 'to frame a coherent national strategy and the advancement of group interests.' J. P. B. Dunbabin, War in History.
