As its the Moon Landing anniversary it occurred to me that there was no mention I could find on MC of a book that I bought from a Woolworths in the mid 50's.
The British title was Rockets, Jets and Guided Missiles I think my copy is in a box, and we both know what that means!
I did look for it on eBay years ago and ended up with the US original version from 1951 published by Random House the illustrations are mostly by Jack Coggins born in the UK, moved to US.
These illustrations from the book would have been known to any of the model makers who worked on the Anderson TV shows. I think the book was purchased by my Dad for me as it explained about the V1 and V2 missiles he was on the receiving end of. It was a popular book back when Dan Dare was new.
7634 shows the page that left the most impression on me as to the horror of war.
I hope you find this interesting, sadly the laminated cover has degraded on this copy but the interior is as new.
