Countdown for Decision
By Maj. General John B. Medaris with Arthur Gordon
Putnam, 1960, 303 pp

General Medaris, formerly in command of the Army's ballistic missile program, reports on his group's achievements in this field and also presents his criticisms of governmental policies and ineptitudes in matters of general strategy, research and development. He is particularly critical of the Air Force, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Pentagon civilians.
