Redstone Arsenal: U.S. Army Missile Command,. 1st ed. 165 pages. Paperback. Original 12 April 1965 edition of the United States Army Missile Command's Directorate of Procurement and Production's on the application of The Experience Curve for the Military's purposes. Much math, slide rule usage, logarithms, and log charts. What makes this work different is their liberal use of cave people cartoons, some tongue-in-cheek risque, alongside the technical stuff. Definitely not PC. Quite scarce.
