This review is from: The RAF's Air War in Libya: New Conflicts in the Era of Austerity (Hardcover)
I found "The RAF's Air War in Libya" an excellent and highly informative read. The author provides an authoritative analysis of the UK's involvement in the Libyan air campaign which, refreshingly, is both readable and accessible, regardless of whether the reader has any background in military history.

The introduction and opening chapter sets the context and political drivers, and from here the book explores the nature of the conflict, its historical parallels and perhaps most importantly, the implications for how such battles may play out in the future.

There is plenty in this book to appeal to a wide variety of readers -- from those with an analytical interest in the rationale and conduct of modern air warfare to the casual reader merely seeking a better understanding of this recent conflict. It's an engrossing and compelling read, penned by an author who obviously understands his subject in considerable detail and is capable of drawing out some important lessons for the future. All too often a well-argued and carefully balanced analysis like this only emerges a considerable time later with the perspective of passing years. We're fortunate therefore to have such an insightful book with these events still fresh in our minds.
