    The Maxwell Papers, the Air War College's occasional papers series, focus on current and future issues of interest to the Air Force and Department of Defense. The first Maxwell Paper was published in May 1996 with the Air University Commander's signature on the foreword. General Fogleman signed the foreword to Maxwell Paper #6, published in November 1996. Maxwell Papers are open to all interested authors, particularly Air War College faculty and students, but also to other officers and analysts.

    Maxwell Papers have been distributed to over 400 addressees including all senior Air Force and DoD decision makers, Professional Military Education (PME) schools, contractors, other US government agencies, and more than 40 foreign air forces and institutions.
