  • The Victorians are known for their commitment to materialism, evidenced by the dominance of empiricism in the sciences and realism in fiction.

    Yet there were other strains of thinking during the period in the physical sciences, social sciences, and literature that privileged the spacesРїС—Р… betweenРїС—Р… the material and immaterial.

    This book examines how the emerging language of the “imponderable” helped Victorian writers and physicists make sense of new experiences of modernity. As Sarah Alexander argues, while Victorian physicists were theorizing ether, energy and entropy, and non-Euclidean space and atom theories, writers such as Charles Dickens, William Morris, and Joseph Conrad used concepts of the imponderable to explore key issues of capitalism, imperialism, and social unrest.

  • This excellent report, professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, addresses a question that is fundamental to the debate about the extent that airpower can function as a maneuver force in a theater campaign.The U.S.

    Air Force contends that airpower is a maneuver force and frequently turns to the 1991 Persian Gulf War for evidence in support of their position. Those critical of the Air Forces view argue that Operation Desert Storm was an aberration and charge that arguments based on that essentially unique event are suspect. Book Turning the Vertical Flank: Airpower as a Maneuver Force in the Theater Campaign: Historic Analysis from Ancient Greece and Rome to the Napoleonic Era and Gettysburg, Normandy, Yom Kippur War Seeking to parry the charge of exceptionalism, Givens deliberately sets out to provide a more broadly grounded study that transcends the particular experience of Operation Desert Storm.Colonel Givens begins with a general examination of warfare from ancient Greece to the American Civil War in order to determine the essential functions of a maneuver force.

    He then examines three distinctly different air operations in reverse chronological order: airpower employment in the 1973 Arab-Israeli War, the use of airpower in conjunction with South Vietnamese ground forces to frustrate the Communist Easter offensive of 1972, and operations against the Wehrmacht during the 1944 Normandy campaign.

    The evidence in all three cases suggests that airpower can function as a maneuver force. The conclusion is—if capable of serving as a maneuver force, airpower can greatly enhance the joint theater campaign both independently and in cooperation with other maneuver forces.Chapter 1 – INTRODUCTION * Methodology * Clarifications * Notes * Chapter 2 – FUNCTIONS OF A MANEUVER FORCE * Ancient Greece: Shock Action through Direct Contact * Rome: A Maneuver Force Exerts a Zone of Influence over the Enemy * Neoclassical Period: A Maneuver Force Compels or Denies Battle * Napoleonic Era: A Maneuver Force Gains and Exploits a Position of Advantage * Maneuver Force Performance Characteristics * Gettysburg Campaign * Summary * Notes * Chapter 3 – 1973 YOM KIPPUR WAR * Overview * Maneuver Force Characteristics of Israeli Air Operations * Summary * Notes * Chapter 4 – 1972 EASTER OFFENSIVE * Overview * Air Campaign Phases Related to Maneuver Force Characteristics * Summary * Notes * Chapter 5 – NORMANDY CAMPAIGN * Overview * Maneuver Force Characteristics of Allied Airpower * Summary * Notes * Chapter 6 – CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS * Conclusions * Implications * Final Thoughts * Notes
