About

My name is Luke Truxal and welcome to my blog that discusses all things air power. I completed my PhD in 2018 from the University of North Texas with my dissertation “Command Unity and the Air War Against Germany.” My previous publications include “Bombing the Romanian Rail Network,” in the Spring 2018 issue of Air Power History and “The Politics of Operational Planning: Ira Eaker and the Combined Bomber Offensive in 1943” in the Journal of Military Aviation History. My most recent article, “Attacking Refugees for Military Effect during the First Iasi-Kishinev Offensive,” can be found on the website From Balloons to Drones. I am also on Twitter at: @Luke_Truxal.
