Summary
This classic episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, narrated by Chet Huntley, graphically illustrates the technological advances made in the development of solid rocket fuels. These fuels, the result of close cooperation between the Armed Forces and American industry, have greatly increased the transportability of our tactical missiles and have simplified their firing procedures. This video from the National Archives and Records Administration traces the history of the U.S. Army missiles and shows examples of their types, uses, and versatility.
