Attached is the now-declassified 1973 history of satellite reconnaissance, publishing within the National Reconnaissance Office at a time when we could not say, “National Reconnaissance Office.”
I have included in this PDF all five volumes, and have included both parts of Volume 2 and both parts of Volume 3.
Because of course.
This is nerdy reading of the best kind. I love histories written on the inside, for the inside, when it’s expected that they’ll never see the light of day – and then, oh, they do. If you look closely, this is a scan of copy 3 of just 5 copies – I find that sexy as hell.
