About the Author

Marshal of the Royal Air Force Sir John Cotesworth (Jack) Slessor GCB, DSO, MC (June 3, 1897-July 12,1979) was a senior commander in the Royal Air Force (RAF). A pilot in the Royal Flying Corps during World War I, he held operational commands in World War II and served in the RAF's most senior post, Chief of the Air Staff, from 1950 to 1952. He was considered a strong proponent of strategic bombing and the nuclear deterrent, and published several books, including an autobiography.


"As the Royal Air Force's top air-power philosopher, Slessor show[ed] great talent by his ability to weld experience and theory. In 1936 he wrote the pioneer text [Air Power and Armies] on strategic air bombardment; in World War II he used it."

"Slessor is an authority on the tactical use of air power. . . . Air Power and Armies is a classic."
