Minuteman: A Technical History of the Missile That Defined American Nuclear Warfare is a detailed history of the Minuteman
intercontinental ballistic missile program, which has served as a powerful component of US nuclear strategies for over half
a century. David K. Stumpf examines breakthroughs in solid propellant, lightweight inertial guidance systems and lightweight
reentry vehicle development, the construction of over a thousand launch and launch control facilities, and key flight test
and operational flight programs, and places the Minuteman program in context with world events.
