This color illustrated, 9x11.5" reference for military buffs and general readers offers a number-by-number, consecutive encyclopedia of all US guided missile systems that have been designated with the "M" prefix in the missile designator system, from MGM-1 through MQM-175. Coverage encompasses missiles that were not produced, as well as those that were mass produced from WWII through the Cold War era, including cruise missiles, air intercept missiles, intercontinental ballistic missiles, and piston-engine drones. Entries give data on size, shape, performance, and missions, and are illustrated with historical and contemporary photos, mainly in color. Author Yenne has written many books on aviation history. The book is distributed in the US by Specialty Press.
