COLD WAR PEACEMAKER

The Story of Cowtown and Convair's B-36 Peacemaker
From Specialty Press

By Don Pyeatt and Dennis R. Jenkins
January 2010

 

After collaborating on previous studies of Convair's B-36, authors Don Pyeatt and Dennis R. Jenkins have combined their unique knowledge of the B-36 and the era in which it served into this book of political intrigue and technological marvels. Jenkins, an aerospace engineer and author of several dozen aircraft histories, and Pyeatt, historian for the B-36 Peacemaker Museum and the 7th Bomb Wing B-36 Association, have teamed to reveal the world of the B-36 as it really was. Whether your interest is in technical details of the world’s first intercontinental nuclear bomber, or in the political and social events leading to its development and Strategic Air Command deployment during the Cold War, this book tells it all. Combined with many seldom-seen photos from private collections and national archives, this book presents a new perspective on the Cold War's premiere nuclear deterrent.  240 pages, 350 photographs, 75,000 words. ISBN 1580071279.
