Cover: The surface-to-air guided missile, shown here being fired by a nuclear-powered cruiser, is an accepted part of today's Navy, but it is a relatively new weapon. The world's first guided missile cruiser Boston (CAG-1) went into commission 25 years ago last month. For the origin of these weapons, see "The Birth of Guided Missiles," starting on page 54.
