The bombs would come with great light and unbearable heat and there would be nowhere to hide. Everybody and everything would be destroyed. I remember the shock I felt, I could not understand why would somebody wan...

    Major Powers The United States. Since the mid-1930's, some U. S. military planners have considered airpower a means of ending a war quickly.
