Thinking About America's Defense; An Analytical Memoir. Glenn A. Kent, Bruce R. Pirnie, David Ochmanek.
Santa Monica, CA: RAND Corporation, 2008. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Trade paperback. xxiv, 257, [3] pages. Figures. Tables. Boxes. Chronology. Awards. Bibliography. Cover has slight wear and soiling. Minor edge soiling. Foreword by Thomas C. Schelling. Forward by Harold Brown. This was part of RAND Project Air Force and was prepared for the United States Air Force and approved for public release. Offers the author's personal overview of analyses of dozens of historic national security issues drawn from his Air Force and RAND careers spanning the latter half of the 20th century. This is not a memoir or a biography in the traditional sense of these words. General Kent was willing to share what he has learned about analysis and defense policymaking. He shares his account of the most significant issues with which he was involved—how he saw each issue and its significance, how he conceptualized and addressed the central analytical problems, and how his work affected policy. Whether the task at hand was setting the performance specifications for the Air Force’s next frontline fighter aircraft, or outflanking the leadership of the Navy in support of the creation of the Single Integrated Operational Plan (SIOP) for U.S. strategic nuclear forces, General Kent always gave it his best.

The Presidential Nuclear Initiatives of 1991-1992; Center for the Study of Weapons of Mass Destruction Case Study 5. Susan J. Koch.
Washington DC: National Defense University Press, 2012. First Printing [Stated]. Wraps. vii, [1], 57,[3] pages. Notes. Bibliography. On the morning of September 28, 1991, then-Colonel Frank Klotz witnessed an historic moment at Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota. As he and other senior officers from the base bomber and missile units watched, the crews for the B-1 strategic bombers that had been on alert that day climbed into their cockpits, started the planes, and taxied one after another away from the alert aircraft parking area. That scene was repeated at all 11 Strategic Air Command (SAC) bases in the United States. By the end of the day, there were no U.S. bombers on alert for the first time in over 30 years. Although the numbers varied over time, a significant portion of U.S. strategic bombers had been on continuous alert since 1957: fully fueled, loaded with weapons, with crews in a special nearby area—ready to launch in a few minutes. On September 28, 1991, Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney signed an Execute Order to end that practice immediately. It has never resumed.
