About the Author

Richard Goette is an air power academic and Canadian air force historian who is an assistant professor in the Royal Military College of Canada's Department of Defence Studies located at the Canadian Forces College in Toronto. He is an associate editor-in-chief of the RCAF Association's flagship publication, Airforce magazine, and also a research associate with the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies in Waterloo. Dr. Goette was recently awarded a Commander of the RCAF Commendation for contributions to Canadian air power and RCAF history and heritage research, publications, and professional military education.


Goette has successfully produced a deeply researched work that is the first significant study of the development of Canadian-US continental defense in the post-Second World War era and, as such, it will remain the go-to book for those looking to understand the origins of this unique relationship for the foreseeable future. -- Brian Laslie, Deputy Command Historian, NORAD and USNORTHCOM * From Balloons to Drones *
