The Bomb and America's Missile Age
The Bomb and America's Missile Age3 8 5 Author: Christopher Gainor Narrator: Tom Perkins
In The Bomb and America's Missile Age, Christopher Gainor explores the U.S. Air Force's (USAF) decision, in March 1954, to build the Atlas, America's first ICBM. Beginning with the story of the guided missiles that were created before and during World War II, Gainor describes how the early Soviet and American rocket programs evolved over the course of the following decade. He argues that the USAF was wrongly criticized for unduly delaying the start of its ICBM program, endangering national security, and causing America embarrassment when a Soviet ICBM successfully put Sputnik into orbit ahead of any American satellite.
