Library Excursion

Gen Norton Schwartz, Chief of Staff, on Thursday issued his 2010 reading list, a selection he says “provides valuable ways for all airmen to further their professional education and augment their leadership skills.” This year’s CSAF reading list contains 13 books divided into three areas: mission, doctrine, and profession; our nation and world; and military history. He recommends that airmen start off with these four on the list: Cyberdeterrence and Cyberwar, by Martin C. Libicki; A History of Air Warfare, by John A. Olsen; In the Graveyard of Empires: America’s War in Afghanistan, by Seth Jones; and Lemay: The Life and Wars of General Curtis Lemay, by Warren Kozak.
