This study evaluates the decision-making process at three distinct levels using Graham T. Allisons three decision-making models. First, this study examines Air Force decision-making based upon grand-strategic, systemic issues to conclude that tactical conventional airpower was given second priority to the dominant policy of strategic nuclear missions as a consequence of President Eisenhowers desire to balance the federal budget while deterring the Soviet Union. Second, an evaluation of organizational decision-making within the various units that contributed to the advancement of tactical airpower reveals that despite the lower level of emphasis, tactical airpower was not entirely neglected.

Third, this paper highlights how senior Air Force individuals in key positions provided prejudiced counsel, which steered national command authorities toward the continuation of the strategy of Massive Retaliation and the subsequent repression of tactical conventional airpower. The final section of this study ties all three levels of examination together to create a comprehensive understanding of how Air Force decision-making, based predominantly on key individuals biases, impeded the advancement of tactical airpower between the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

This impediment resulted in a greater loss of lives and resources during the opening months of the Vietnam War.INTRODUCTION * Qualifications and Significance * STRATEGIC CONTEXT * Strategic Contextual Factors - Pre-Korea * Soviets, Atomic Weapons, and the USAF * The Impact of a Declining Defense Budget * The Strategic Contextual Factors - The Korean War * Tactical Airpower Use * Nuclear Options * Lessons Learned From the War * The Strategic Contextual Factors - Post Korean War * MODEL I ANALYSIS: US TACTICAL AIRPOWER FROM NEW LOOK TO FLEXIBLE RESPONSE * Model I Decision-Making * US National Security Policy During the 1950s * US Military Strategy * DROPSHOT * Tactical Airpowers Role * Sputnik and the Rise of ICBMs * Objections to Massive Retaliation * Was Tactical Airpower Impeded?
