✏Informing the Debate The Impact of Operations Other Than War on Combat Training Readiness Book Summary : Under a National Security Strategy of Engagement and Enlargement, the U.S. Army is likely to deploy more frequently in Operations Other Than War (OOTW) while the post Cold War drawdown enters its final phases. This study explores the impacts of OOTW on the training readiness of these units to conduct combat operations. It is based on a survey instrument distributed to students and faculty members of the U.S. Army War College. The unique density of War College students with OOTW experience in leadership positions provides a fertile basis to explore both benefits and costs associated with OOTW. Respondents answered questions in three distinct categories: (1) predeployment training readiness; (2) training readiness during OOTW, and (3) post deployment training readiness. The core findings of this project are that there are significant, but largely predictable, costs associated with OOTW; that units recovering from OOTW are frequently not afforded adequate time for recovery; and that standard reporting and evaluation means are frequently not used to identify, track and resolve training readiness shortfalls. Resulting pockets of unreadiness are thus more likely to occur as frequency of OOTW deployments increases and force structure and other resources decrease. Specific recommendations are offered to mitigate many of these negative impacts so that such pockets of unreadiness can be prevented.

✏The Praetorian STARShip the untold story of the Combat Talon Book Summary : Jerry Thigpen's study on the history of the Combat Talon is the first effort to tell the story of this wonderfully capable machine. This weapons system has performed virtually every imaginable tactical event in the spectrum of conflict and by any measure is the most versatile C-130 derivative ever produced. First modified and sent to Southeast Asia (SEA) in 1966 to replace theater unconventional warfare (UW) assets that were limited in both lift capability and speed the Talon I quickly adapted to theater UW tasking including infiltration and resupply and psychological warfare operations into North Vietnam. After spending four years in SEA and maturing into a highly respected UW weapons system the Joint Chief of Staff (JCS) chose the Combat Talon to lead the night low-level raid on the North Vietnamese prison camp at Son Tay. Despite the outcome of the operation the Talon I cemented its reputation as the weapons system of choice for long-range clandestine operations. In the period following the Vietnam War United States Air Force (USAF) special operations gradually lost its political and financial support which was graphically demonstrated in the failed Desert One mission into Iran. Thanks to congressional supporters like Earl Hutto of Florida and Dan Daniel of Virginia funds for aircraft upgrades and military construction projects materialized to meet the ever-increasing threat to our nation. Under the leadership of such committed hard-driven officers as Brenci Uttaro Ferkes Meller and Thigpen the crew force became the most disciplined in our Air Force. It was capable of penetrating hostile airspace at night in a low-level mountainous environment covertly to execute any number of unconventional warfare missions.

✏RF 101 Voodoo Units in Combat Book Summary : McDonnell's F-101 Voodoo series was in many ways the most interesting of the 'Century Series' fighter programmes of the 1950s, partly because the type's design and intended mission changed radically during a 40-year career. Originally designed as a fighter-bomber, it was converted to be a reconnaissance aircraft, serving alongside the U-2 and RF-8 Crusaders during the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War. Although it gained a reputation as a difficult aircraft to handle, the jet's supersonic speed and newly-developed camera suite enabled it to conduct vital low-altitude photo-reconnaissance missions over heavily-defended target areas. In combat, the RF 101 was usually 'first in-last out' for strike missions. This made it a ready target, with a solo aircraft flying straight and level to gather target photo evidence at low-altitude offering enemy gunners plenty of opportunity to shoot the Voodoo down. This study tells the combat stories of this extraordinary aircraft, highlighting the difficulty of the missions on which it was sent and the courage of its pilots.
