  • Frightening

    The reality of the cold war and the nuclear arms race is frightening. I would have been happy for the book to have just run through the history of the nuclear arms race without focusing on the Damascus Incident.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great book

    Very well written. The story of the accident at a missle silo near Damascus is woven into the history of the Atomic arms race and it's consequences in the management of command and control over the weapons of mass destruction. No as authorative and expansive as "The history of the atomic bomb", but a nice read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Terrifying account of nuclear weapon

    Spanning decades, this work delves into nuclear weapons and the hazards they create, by simply existing, in fantastic detail but with great humanity. From dropped screws to plane crashes and missile explosions the author terrified me with how close we came to accidental or unintentional nuclear armageddon. My toaster has more safety features than the early nuclear weapons systems! A great read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A real eye opener

    Shows the inherent dangers of just keeping nuclear weapons, let alone using them.
