About $4.00, with free shipping, on eBay right now . . .

I just bought one for my library ( the 1990 revised edition ), in "very good" condition !

It was copyrighted in 1981 and published in 1984 & 1990.

Default Rockets and Missiles of WW III

I just went looking to see if I still had a copy of that book but did not find it. (Don't remember if I already got rid of it.) IIRC, it was not a great source of scale data, having only "beauty shot"-style photographs of missiles and no scale drawings.

On the other hand, I can strongly recommend Soviet/Russian Aircraft Weapons Since World War Two by Yefim Gordon, published by Midland back in 2004. ISBN 1 85780 188 1. Lots of large, clearly rendered profile drawings from which measurements can be pulled. Lots of good photos. Good coverage of most Russian current air-to-air missiles, air-to-ground, cruise, and even post-WW II buzzbomb test missiles. Three thumbs up!

Dave,

Thanks! Really a great suggestion! In addition to volumes that cover the usual suspects I'm particularly interested in stuff we don't normally see. So, thanks again!

Steve

If anyone would like a "nice collection" of books, shoot me an email and a Dropbox invitation will be on the way . . .

I'm not going to list them, but no one should be disappointed . . . Besides, the "price is right" - LOL !
