I've stumbled across four titles (below) but couldn't find more information about them than what is available at amazon. Anyone knows the author, 45th Space Wing History Office, the publisher or the books themselves? Thanks.
  • The 655th Missile and Space Launches Through 1970 by Mark C. Cleary and 45th Space Wing History Office (Jul 30, 2012).
  • Atlas and Titan Space Operations at Cape Canaveral 1993-2006 by Mark C. Cleary and 45th Space Wing History Office (Jul 30, 2012).
  • The Cape: Military Space Operations 1971-1992 by Mark C. Cleary and 45th Space Wing History Office (Jul 30, 2012).
  • Delta II and III Space Operations at Cape Canaveral 1989-2009 by Mark C. Cleary and 45th Space Wing History Office (Jul 30, 2012).

According to an email from Rick W. Sturdevant, the first and third titles were published some years back by then 45th Space Wing historian Mark Cleary. He also produced the second and fourth titles before he retired, but maybe only in digital versions.

Stay tuned.

I believe I saw a copy of "The Cape" at Barnes and Noble earlier this year. The 45th Space Wing is located at Patrick Air Force Base so the publisher or author may be something connected to the Air Force Space and Missile Museum.

All four show up as paperback books on Amazon as well as a couple of other sites.

According to the current 45th Space Wing Historian, there are no hard copies available to his knowledge at this time.

The fact that the "publisher" has no website is also suspicious. (the same for CreateSpace which has interesting titles but no website, no other info than what amazon.com provides, so I'll pass).

I wonder they were published digitally and the "publisher" printed off copies. At least one is described as inscribed by the author.

There is a fifth book out there:

Eastern Range Launch Site Summary Facilities & Launches 1950 Through 1994.

This was published by the 45th Space Wing History office in 1995.

Cleary was the 45th Space Wing historian until recently.
