Middle East Air Power in the 21st Century

The Middle East is potentially the world's major and most dangerous trouble spot. This book looks at why airpower is of such strategic and tactical importance in the area. It provides an overview of the state of the air forces in the first decade of the 21st Century. Each air force will be profiled, aerospace industries reviewed, major campaigns in the past decade are examined and the future airpower is discussed.

The countries include Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Kuwait, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, UAE, Yemen and will also cover British and American operations. Each country is profiled with its air forces history, current status, order of battle, aircraft, ordnance and recent operations. Air campaigns of the 21st Century within the region are also described.

The book includes many colour and mono photographs, maps and diagrams.

Tim Ripley is a correspondent for Jane's Defence Weekly and has covered widely during the recent Middle East wars. He is the author of more than 20 books, including Air War Iraq and 16 Air Assault Brigade published by Pen & Sword.
