|Chief of Staff Adds Five Books to Reading List
WASHINGTON (AFPN) -- Officials announced five additions to the Air Force chief of staff reading list June 12.
"The books on our reading list link our heritage to the horizon before us,” said Gen. T. Michael Moseley. “They help Airmen better understand our Air Force’s and our nation’s rich military heritage. But they also give us context for our ongoing war on terror and keep us thinking about important changes to the international security environment that affect our daily lives and operations.”
The five new books include:
-- Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era, by James M. McPherson
-- The First Heroes: The Extraordinary Story of the Doolittle Raid, America's First World War II Victory, by Craig Nelson
-- The Persian Puzzle: The Conflict Between Iran and America, by Ken Pollack
-- Airpower Against Terror: America’s Conduct of Operation Enduring Freedom, by Benjamin Lambeth
-- Eddie Rickenbacker: An American Hero in the Twentieth Century, by W. David Lewis
