Hopkins. Former reconnaissance pilot and author Robert S. Hopkins, III, gives us insight into the strategic intelligence flights from the early Cold War years in this heavily detailed publication. He provides a personal point-of-view, along with conducted research on the belief that the flights served to prevent war, curtailed needless defense spending, and were covered by rogue generals that sought World War III. We also learn from never-before-seen, newly-declassified materials, interviews with crews and policymakers, and his own experience flying missions. 240 pages, 8"x 11½", hardcover.
