Thanks for the offer, I am pretty sure I have read it. Thanks anyway!
The Boyd book is really not a "combat" book at all. He was the top instructor at the "Weapons School" at Nellis - the airforce version to "Top Gun". He then went on to much headier stuff in terms of air-combat tactics and fighter aircraft design. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy-Maneuverability_theory
To read of his "battles" in the Pentagon is mind-boggling, and in a way, perversely comforting for someone who lives in a country where greed, corruption and self-interest are rife. It seems to happen in the best of places!
Air forces around the world have borrowed from the work of this amazing and complex man. (At least someone learned something...
...even the Scottish Airforce?)
