You did not want to be on the receiving end of Titan II.

The Titan II Handbook was written especially for those with an interest in missiles, military hardware, the Cold War, or nuclear weapons, and includes detailed photos and descriptions of every corner and level of the last remaining Titan II launch complex.

The Handbook was thoroughly researched and written by Chuck Penson, archivist and historian for the Titan Missile Museum, near Tucson, Arizona.
