"Although the argument is not new, Allies in Air Power incorporates a number of little-known examples that add substantially to the field of aviation and air power history. This book adds significant input and analysis to the existing field in important and unique ways." -- S. Mike Pavelec, author of War and Warfare since 1945
"This book should be required reading for anyone pondering or responsible for the art and science of organizing and effectively employing international coalitions of air forces in future conflicts. Of particular importance to future air warfare leaders will be the discussions in each case study of the things that tended to hinder effective coalition building -- differing political mandates, lack of pre-conflict interactions, and differing levels of training, doctrines, and equipage -- and the things that broke down those barriers -- personal relationships among senior commanders, shared strategic interests, and common military and national cultures and language." -- Robert Owen, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Colonel, USAF (Ret.)
"In the last few years, serious scholarly attention has been devoted to the potential and problems of multilateral military operations. Allies in Air Power is an insightful collection of essays outlining the history of multilateral air operations since the First World War. It fills an important gap in the literature on the subject and will be of great use to many scholars and students with an interest in military history and strategic studies." -- Bettina Renz, professor of international security at the University of Nottingham
