KIRKUS REVIEW

Following a deluge of books on missiles, rockets, and the men responsible for them, this book tells the story of the Air Force soldiers responsible for their operation in hundreds of bases throughout the U.S. and Europe. Beginning with SAC General Thomas Power's 1960 warning that the missile age has arrived, it tells how General Schriever helped develop ballistics missiles, how men were trained to use them, how bases were built, and even gives a chapter to life aboard an atomic polaris submarine on ready patrol. Brisk, informative writing about one of the nation's most important defense lines.
