Machines and Weaponry of the Cold WarBook - 2013
The war that never saw a true battle had some of the most impressive weapons in military history--on both sides. In this exciting series, readers take a look at the science behind the United States' Cold War with the Soviet Union, a decades-long buildup of warheads and weapons that ended without a battle fought. Full-color photographs will introduce readers to the tanks, missiles, and airplanes that Soviets and Americans amassed over the years. Firsthand accounts from soldiers who developed and operated these weapons will help readers understand how the development and application of technology can mean the difference between winning and losing the biggest battles in history.
