KIRKUS REVIEW

In a navy which increasingly recognizes the efficacy of rockets and missiles, the problems accompanying conversion are enormous. In this compendium of navy rockets, the author illustrates the gradual changes that are being made in our navy, discusses problems of conversion--the regulated and paced changes which hope to avoid premature obsolescence--and systematically lists individual weapons, their origins and functions. Photographically illustrated, this slim text provides a good reference book for those interested in technical aspects of modern warfare as they are manifest in the United States Navy.
