Return to Illinois Nike sites
In 1998, Corey J. Motel was very kindly sent to me a Xerox copy of the Department of Defense booklet
"LAST LINE OF DEFENSE, NIKE MISSILE SITES IN ILLINOIS"
and reported that it was available from:
Mr. Keith Ryder, Archaeologist
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
111 N. Canal St., Chicago, IL 60606-7206
I think it is a very well written, informative introduction to NIKE.

Now in 2016, Greg Brown lent me his copy of the above book. It scanned much better, Internet Service Provider disc space is practically free, and available Internet speeds much higher -
so I produced a much nicer verson using .pdf and in color (OK, the book's colors are limited - green, and grey scale ;-))
The whole book 15 megabytes
Thomas Page found this http://www.allworldwars.com/Last-Line-of-Defense-Nike-Missile-Sites-in-Illinois.html in a different format.
