Conclusion

Appendices; Notes; Selected Bibliography; Index
Richard Goette's book is clearly a labor of love. Goette is a historian and airpower expert, and this book represents a deep dive into the decisions and debates between 1940 and 1957 that created the command and control (C2) architecture of the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) (now North American Aerospace Defense Command). -- Andrea Charron * H-Net * Goette has successfully produced a deeply researched work that is the first significant study of the development of Canadian-US continental defense in the post-Second World War era and, as such, it will remain the go-to book for those looking to understand the origins of this unique relationship for the foreseeable future. -- Brian Laslie, Deputy Command Historian, NORAD and USNORTHCOM * From Balloons to Drones *
