by Woodhouse Martin

Condition: Very Good+ in Good dust jacket


New York: Coward - Mccann, Inc.. Very Good+ in Good dust jacket. 1966. Book Club Edition. Hardcover. DJ chips and tears repaired with clear tape. ; Book in excellent condition interior is clean and tight without any marks. Is is a novel about the 1960's cold war arms race to develop long range reconnaissance drones. The action takes place in many locales, but much of it is set in Britain and Libya. The book's descriptions of aircraft control systems are clearly informed by Woodhouse's real life work on the target acquisition and guidance systems for early variants of the RAF's Bloodhound SAM. Woodhouse's writing is filled with very dry, humorous prose. Protagonists tend to be very intelligent, scarcastic, and unimpressed with authority figures. Many of his books are filled with details that reflect his background in engineering and medicine. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 252 pages .
