505 0  Introduction -- The relationship between American ground 
       power and air power before the end of the Cold War -- Iraq,
       1991 -- Kosovo, 1999 -- Afghanistan, 2001 -- Iraq, 2003 --
       What has been learned and what has not? 
520    The relative roles of U.S. ground and air power have 
       shifted since the end of the Cold War. At the level of 
       major operations and campaigns, the Air Force has proved 
       capable of and committed to performing deep strike 
       operations, which the Army long had believed the Air Force
       could not reliably accomplish. If air power can largely 
       supplant Army systems in deep operations, the implications
       for both joint doctrine and service capabilities would be 
       significant. To assess the shift of these roles, the 
       author of this report analyzed post-Cold War conflicts in 
       Iraq (1991), Bosnia (1995), Kosovo (1999), Afghanistan 
       (2001), and Iraq (2003). Because joint doctrine frequently
       reflects a consensus view rather than a truly integrated 
       joint perspective, the author recommends that joint 
       doctrine-and the processes by which it is derived and 
       promulgated-be overhauled. The author also recommends 
       reform for the services beyond major operations and 
       campaigns to ensure that the United States attains its 
       strategic objectives. This revised edition includes 
       updates and an index.
