As its title (in English, ‘Rocket Propulsion—Its Development, Application and Future’) implies and its foreword emphasizes, this volume is concerned more with rocket design and constructional practice up to the present day, with indications of probable future trends, than with detailed theoretical analysis of the thermo‐dynamic, aerodynamic, metallurgical, and chemical problems involved. Within these terms of reference it presents an unusually thorough and comprehensive descriptive survey of the available unclassified data, together with sufficient theoretical background to enable the newcomer to the field to understand the trends of development.
