Herman, I&NS 7.2, takes issue with the author's conflating of "electronic warfare" and "electronics in war" and his inclusion of sonar in his subject. Nevertheless, the reviewer notes that, for those new to the subject, the book is "a good exposition of physical principles and the technological history."

According to Maj. Gen. David Gust, the Army's program executive officer for intelligence and electronic warfare, "[t]he ability to hack into enemy computers from aircraft and unmanned air vehicles may be a new U.S. Army weapon in less than five years."

"The U.S. Air Force's two EC-130H [Compass Call] squadrons -- totaling 13 available aircraft and 20 aircrews when at total strength, which they seldom are -- have the crucial job of degrading the transfer of information essential to a foe's command and control of his troops, equipment and supplies. The two units operate as part of the 12th Air Force's 355th Wing and are stationed at Davis-Monthan AFB, Ariz."
