It is important to understand the focus of the book. SAC and strategic reconnaissance efforts are ignored and the efforts of jammer aircraft (altho not ignored) get comparatively short shrift. The emphasis is on the planes (and aircrew) who sought out and attacked enemy radars and SAM sites, particularly in Vietnam. If you want a broader picture, I recommend getting The History of Electronic Warfare vol. 3 (the first two volumes cover WW2 to 1964). This book is more readable, however, and gives you more of a feel for what it actually was like, packing its story into a much slimmer volume without sacrificing detail.
