Format: Paperback
This book has superb coverage of this now little-known but extremely important project. It is jammed with color and B&W photographs, diagrams and drawings, and facts. The book also looks at concurrent missile programs of the 1950s, such as the Snark, Atlas, and Redstone.

This is an excellent book about Navaho. It briefly details the post WWII situation which lead to many missile programs (including Navaho), describes various components of Navaho, details each and every flight related to the project, covers related/similar missile programs and concludes with a chapter describing how technology developed in the Navaho program has been used in many unrelated defence projects since.

Also has many photographs of Navaho and other missiles/aircraft of its day (colour and black and white).

I saw a copy of this book at the Friends of Amateur Rocketry meeting at the SRTF (Small Rocket Test Facility) in Mojave,Ca., looked for it on Amazon, found it, and ordered it immediately.

I went to work at North American Aviation on the Navaho project in Downey, Ca. in 1955, It was my first job out of college. This great little book brings back some fond (and sometimes scary) memories. I worked on the guidance system and navigation control computer and was present at several of the launch attempts at the cape. I remember the launch where the kerosine tank failed to disconnect as well as the one where the engines shut down when the umbilical detached and the missile fell back on the launch pad. It was the early days of rocketry and the dawn of the space age. This marvelous little book captures it quite well. Kudos to the author and all the work that went into creating this marvelous bit of history. My father worked on the X10 part of the project and I just wish he was still around to see this book.
