Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Henry H. Arnold was a true believer in the power of the Air Force. He was one of only nine people ever to earn the rank of five-star general, and the only one with that rank in the Air Force. He had pushed for an Air Force independent of the Army, and he never wavered in his conviction of the usefulness of maximum destructive power in combat. #2 Arnold was a fanatical swimmer, and he pushed for the Air Force to be independent of the Army. He hired a test pilot named Franklin R. Collbohm to help him establish a new kind of scientific community, and the two men flew to California to meet with Douglas Aircraft boss Donald Douglas. #3 The Air Force was formed in 1946, and it was led by General Curtis LeMay. He was a cold warrior who wanted to develop new weapons, and he was the ideal candidate to lead the organization. #4 The US government contracted out its scientific research to private companies, so that they could create new weapons faster and cheaper.

Soldier repatriation from Afghanistan has impacted debate about the war. This study highlights this impact with particular focus on Britain, Denmark and Germany. All three countries deployed soldiers soon after the 9/11 attacks, yet their role in Afghanistan and the casualty rates suffered, have been vastly different. This book looks at how their casualties influenced the framing of the war by analysing the political discourse about the casualties, how the media covered the repatriation and the burials, and how the dead were officially recognised and commemorated. Explaining how bodies count is not done exclusively by focusing on the political leadership and the media in the three countries, the response from the men and women in Afghanistan to the official framing of the war is given particular weight. Martinsen contributes to our understanding of European strategic culture by showing how countries respond to the same security challenges.
