Looking for electronic warfare book

This seems like the right subforum for this post. If not, please direct me to the proper location.

I'm looking for a book that I read about thirteen years ago in a school library. Its title was "Electronic Warfare in the 20th Century" or "History of Electronic Warfare" (more likely along the lines of the first one). I'm not exactly sure of the title, but I distinctly remember a green grid on a black background covering the entire front and that it was hardcover. I think it was likely published around the 80s. I do remember it had a section on the EF-111 Raven.

Searching online, I can't seem to find any electronic warfare books matching the description of the cover, so if anyone could help, that would be great.

Thanks.

Sir, would like to help. Have a few of these types of books. Was this a textbook, a general purpose history of EW, a Jane's sort of equipment book, an engineering book? Might help to narrow it down as it might have changed titles since you read it.

I believe it was a textbook with a general purpose history of EW.

Some with greenish covers – some not so much. Most a bit…pricey. Textbook format from publisher Artech House who seems to be the leader in such volumes.
