"A Fiery Peace in a Cold War" is probably the best history of the development of the ICBM program that's not classified. It is also an ok, but not spectacular, look at the lives of the people most specifically, Bernard Schriever who developed the program. It's probably unfair to compare this to Sheehan's best work, "A Bright Shining Lie," but the narrative bogs down in detail at times and the characters aren't as clear cut.
