    This book is a declassified government report from the late fifties about how a nuclear war would be fought. It includes annotations that are very informative and suplemental material including pictures.

It includes annotations that are very informative and suplemental material including pictures. Apparently, despite the fact that the first nuclear weapons were used on civilian centers, the general strategy of the United States and Russia was to use nuclear weapons as a tactical weapon. This book describes how the strategy of nuclear combat evolved from use of nuclear weapons on the battlefield to Mutually Assured Destruction with Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. This book was very informative. I read this book because I saw it for cheap at a used book store and it caught my interest.

    I thought it was going to be something different. A lot of declassified material but obviously nothing juicy. Interesting if you want to see how the US would react to a nuclear attack in the mid 50s.
