Spacetrack :Watchdog of the Skies (1969)


Spacetrack is an unusual children's book. Still typical of Charles Coombs' illustrated military and space technology book but it is basically all about NORAD and the Deep Space Network. I find it fascinating that "Space War" was being contemplated  at this time and shared with children. Was this the roots of the new branch of the military "The Space Force?"
