This is the exciting story of the pioneers responsible for creating the most influential & far-reaching communications breakthrough since the invention of the telephone.

With Defense Dept. funds, a band of visionary computer whizzes he inspired began work on a nationwide, interlocking network of computers. Taking readers behind the scenes, this book captures the hard work, genius, & happy accidents of their daring, stunningly successful venture. Black & white photos.
