Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:
- Why was the area around Kaesong known as “Holy Land” in the Korean War?

Like its predecessor publication, this work ”is conceived as an operational history, with no more consideration for administrative and logistical problems than is necessary to understand the employment of air units in combat.”
In addition to the main text, there is a glossary, footnotes and an index. There is also a list of maps and charts. Index entries for operation and specific mission names are in uppercase.
All three of these volumes ought to provide helpful background in stories featuring military characters during the 1950s.
