"Gainor provides an excellent synthesis of previous scholarship, with a refreshing examination and interpretation of primary sources for the ten-year period immediately following World War II. Professional historians and general readers alike should be attracted to the book."

"Gainor relates, in clear prose, the complex origins of America's intercontinental ballistic missile program. The Bomb and America's Missile Age is an important contribution to scholarship, as it overturns an entrenched interpretation going back to the post-Sputnik controversy, one that emphasized the resistance of air force bomber generals to long-range missiles. The reader emerges with an understanding of just why the United States' ICBM program occurred when it did and the way it did."
