The development of ballistic missiles and nuclear warheads had a profound impact on superpower rivalries and structured international relations for decades, changing the way nations believed war would be fought in the future. In this general history of the development of rockets and missiles, Chun traces the technology that made “attack from beyond the Horizon” possible. A former missile launch officer, he focuses not only on the development and employment of the ballistic missile- from early German V-2 use to today- but on their subsequent impact on national strategies, doctrine, force structure, and politics.
