Rearming for the Cold War, 1945-1960: History of Acquisition in the Department of Defense, Volume I
Elliott V. Converse III (au)
A history of the acquisition of major weapon systems by the U.S. armed forces from 1945 to 1960, the decade and a half that spanned the Truman and Eisenhower administrations following World War II. These instruments of warfare äóî aircraft, armored vehicles, artillery, guided missiles, naval vessels, and supporting electronic systems äóî when combined with nuclear warheads, gave the postwar American military unprecedented deterrent and striking power. They were also enormously expensive. One study estimated that from the end of World War II through the mid-1990s the U.S. spent over $5 trillion (including the cost of the wartime atomic bomb project) on the development, production, and deployment of nuclear weapons, and on the systems for delivering and defending against them. Twenty percent of that sum was expended between 1945 and 1960. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
