Between 1910 and 1970, scientists and military authorities created hundreds of predictions in Popular Mechanics in regards to the future of warfare. Astrophysics professor, science-fiction author, and NASA advisor Gregory Benford provides an introduction to every single chapter. 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 each and every military buff, retrophile, and futurist. And the jacket unfolds into an amazing 24” x 19” poster of fantastic machines, blasters, and flying tanks.
