Description
 
Philip Taubman (au). During the early years of the cold war, a handful of Americans, led by Pres. Eisenhower, revolutionized spying & warfare. In great secrecy & beyond the prying eyes of Congress & the press, they built exotic new machines that opened up the Soviet Union to surveillance & protected the U.S. from surprise nuclear attack. This is the dramatic story of these men & their inventions, told in full for the first time. In a brief period of top-secret innovation during the 1950s, a small group of scientists, engineers, businessmen, & government officials rewrote the book on airplane design & led the nation into outer space. They designed, built, & operated the U-2 & supersonic SR-71 spy planes & Corona, the first reconnaissance satellites. Photos.
