Dream of Civilized Warfare by Linda R. Robertson
Book DescriptionIn "The Dream of Civilized Warfare, Robertson presents the compelling, story of the creation of the first American air force--and how, through the propaganda of the flying ace, a vision of "clean" or civilized combat was sold to politicians and the public. She traces the long history of the American desire to exert the nation's will throughout the world without having to risk the lives of ground soldiers--a theme that continues to reverberate in public discussions, media portrayals, and policy decisions today.

Analyzes the link between "civilized warfare" and the American self-image. This book presents the story of the creation of the first American air force and how the American imagination was shaped by the depiction of the flying ace - the gentleman warrior who offered not only a symbol of warfare, but also a distraction to the American public.
