While in the army from 1959 to 1962 I bought an Argus C20 from a buddy and it was my first experience with 35mm photography. Some months later I went to Downtown Fayetteville on payday night and ended up wandering into a pawn shop at the corner of Combat Alley and Main Street and found a Petri Green Window, rangefinder camera for $25.00, which was my first real camera. I still have it.

"Spies in the Sky" by Taylor Downing looks like what you may want. There is also the book "Flight, Camera, Action! the History of U.S. Naval Aviation Photography and Photo-Reconnaissance" by Douglas Campbell tha might help. I remember reading a book on the US reconnaissance operations but I do not remember the title. It was written by a military officer that was deeply involved in AR from WWI until the Vietnam war it was extremely well written and very informative. I will look in my library and when I find the title I will post it. I worked as a photographer for a Photogrammetric company, hanging on in the back end of single and twin engine aircraft taking stereoscopic images for mapping and then developing and printing the images I took. It was a lot of fun.

Most likely. I'm always surprised when I hear "Jeep" used to describe almost any kind of vehicle, especially on English TV. I was with a group of people, and one guy said, "We can take my Jeep." His Jeep was a Porsche Cayenne!

Of course the Jeeps now are no where close to the original Jeep. Calling a Porsche Cayenne, that person probably thinks the company that manufacturers his vehicle is Porch
