Self-Guided Explosives

Series: Military Engineering in Action

By Earle Rice Jr.

Firing Hellfire missiles in Afghanistan, launching Tomahawk cruise missiles from a destroyer, or manning the underground launch control panel for nuclear warheads is all part of America’s military missile program. This book takes readers to the front lines, explaining the innovation, development, and use of precision-guided smart weapons, ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and nuclear deterrence. They will learn about the dawn of the missile age and how the armed forces use these weapons. Fact boxes give detailed specs about the weapons and an inside look at military training.
