Neil Sheehan has written a book about an obscure man who was to shepherd one of the key developments during the Cold War- the development of the US’s ICBM capability. His book is titled “A Fiery Peace in a Cold War”. The NYT has a review of it and I will be reviewing it myself after finishing it. Definitely worth the time.
