Abstract : This report argues that current members of U.S. aerospace forces do not have a language or lexicon to differentiate one theory of airpower from another. To solve this problem, this report (1) describes the prison house of language that thwarted airpower theorists in the past, (2) provides a model to analyze airpower theory properly, and (3) reviews different theories of airpower, with a primary emphasis on five post 1960 theorists.
