This article discusses the book "Wings for Peace," by Bonner Fellers. The author in this book presents an eloquent case for making strategic air power the main reliance of the national defense. The opening sections consist in large part of fairly straight- forward and intelligent argument in favor of an expansion of the strategic air wing. Strategic air power commits the government to maximum force or nothing. It leaves us the choice between thumbing our nose and blowing up the world. It is hopelessly unsuited for the challenge of a prolonged Cold War. We can meet this challenge only by developing armed strength in sufficient size and variety to enable us to meet the whole spectrum of threats short of total war.
