Doyle. An almost forgotten weapon of the mid-20th century, the M65 atomic cannon — which only fired one round in its history, doing so in May 1953 — was developed in the event that long-range bombers proved insufficient at delivering nuclear warheads. Featuring nearly 400 time-spanning photographs, this title explores the 280mm atomic cannon which, in addition to deployment in Europe, was sent to Korea as a nuclear deterrent. 240 pages, 385 color and B&W photos, 9½"x 7½", softcover.
