1 Review
A study of the United States Air Force in space. Of all the military services, the Air Force has been preeminently involved for the past fifty years in initiating, developing, and applying the technology of space-based systems in support of the nation's national security. Yet there has been no single-volume overview of the Air Force space story to serve as an introduction and guide for interested readers. In November 1992, a high-level Air Force Blue Ribbon PaneZ on Space, chaired by then Lieutenant General Thomas S. Moorman, Jr., commander of Air Force Space Command, concluded there was a specific need to better educate people, both in the service and among the general populace, about the history of Air Force space activities. "Beyond Horizons" has been written to meet this need.

Review: Beyond Horizons: A Half Century Of Air Force Space Leadership

User Review  - Scott Martin - Goodreads

A dry single volumne that attempts to educate on the history of the space program and the Air Force's Role in it. Had been trying to read this book off and on for years. Not the most thrilling, but maybe worth keeping as a reference volumne. Read full review
