This is the authoritative history of US electronic warfare, from the Vietnam War to the new millennium. New technology since World War II has revolutionised the way wars are fought. War in the Fourth Dimension reveals the secrets of electronic warfare tactics and equipment in Vietnam, during the Gulf War, in the war in Kosovo and elsewhere. In Vietnam, the first use of Soviet surface-to-air missiles against US planes inflicted a major reverse on the US air campaign, which was only checked by the introduction of electronic countermeasures systems and revised tactics. In subsequent conflicts, the low loss rates suffered by US planes attacking targets in missile-defended areas were the result of the earlier hard-learnt lessons. War in the Fourth Dimension provides valuable insight into the long-running intelligence battle to collect detailed information on unfriendly nations' electronic systems, the development of radar stealth techniques, the effect of computer technology on countermeasures systems, the evolution of information warfare and a review of likely developments in electronic warfare systems in the future.This book gives the clearest possible account of these new technologies in modern warfare and how they affect the outcome of battles.
