Strategy in the Missile Age
by Bernard Brodie
Publisher: RAND Corporation 2007
Number of pages: 440

Originally published in 1959, it retains ample relevance today for its discussion of the origins of air power, its cornerstone position in the evolution of Cold War era nuclear strategy, and its treatment of preventive and preemptive attacks, deterrence, and the economics of strategy.
