Description

Between 1910 and 1970, scientists and military experts made hundreds of predictions in "Popular Mechanics" about the future of warfare. Some of those prophecies were downright nuts, while others veered eerily close to reality. This collection of vintage articles, with their stunning original art, will spark the imagination of every military buff, retrophile and futurist. And the jacket turns into an amazing poster of fantastic machines, blasters and flying tanks. Astrophysics professor, science-fiction author and NASA advisor Gregory Benford provides an introduction to every chapter.show more
