Rings of Supersonic Steel Air Defenses of the United States Army 1950-1979

An Introductory History & Site Guide Third Edition

By Mark L. Morgan and Mark A. Berhow

Go inside a Nike missile site! View the inner workings and relive the day-to-day operations. Told through the eyes of the men and women who stood ready at Site SF-88, THE LAST MISSILE SITE paints a vivid picture of the around-the-clock military mission that protected our nation from aerial attack during the tensest years of the Cold War.

THE LAST MISSILE SITE is the first book to fully describe SF-88—the only restored Nike missile site—and is ideal for historic preservationists, Cold War buffs, military historians, vets, park managers, park visitors, and volunteer groups.
