I'm trying to find information (books) on the Titan II/III(x) series of ICBMs and launch vehicles. I've found a few websites about the Titan II ICBM and a few books at Amazon but nothing really about the Titan III(x) series of launch vehicles. My local library networks did not have either of the Titan II books I found.
On a specific note I read that the Titan IIIC had a way of steering its solid fuel boosters without using moveable nozzles but could not find any more info about this. Does anyone know about this?

Thrust vector control using fluid injection through 24 annular ports to alter the geometry of the nozzle exhaust plume...

The "Rockets of the World" books by Peter Alway have some nice sections devoted to the Titan space launchers (Titan Gemini, Titan 34D, Titan IIC and Titan IV). Granted they don't go too far into the technical details, but you get some very good measurements of the boosters themselves. Plus, the book covers practically every other space launcher ever built from almost every country involved.
I believe ARA press currently offers a printing of the latest edition of Rockets of the World.

I have many Titan III user's guides and familiarization documents and I worked T-34D and T-IV missions. What would you like to know?
