Educational Reference Publication

Introduction: The evaluation of the effects of aerial bombardment operations ... has been raised to first importance by the maturing of air power in the present conflict. No established methodology has been evolved, however, for making such an evaluation; in fact the exact nature and scope of the problem itself are not generally understood. Assuming adequate force employed, the ability ... to accomplish the physical destruction of targets has been demonstrated. The effects, however, of such destruction on the course and duration of the war, are not readily apparent. Those effects are numerous and complex, and range from tangible ones capable of more or less precise measurement to highly imponderable ones incapable of such measurement. The relative importance of the various effects may have no relationship to the degree of tangibility present in each. For example [t]he evaluation of the state of enemy morale at any given time belongs in the category of factors which make the conduct of war an art as well as a science.
