This is a faithful reprint of the original 1963 document, itself a significant precursor to later booklets such as Protect and Survive. The cover of this edition is a modern re-invention, but the original (rather more plain) cover is reproduced inside.

The only thing I would say is that you can, if you watch out for it, still get the original booklet on auction websites for about the same price as the RRP of this reprint.

More colourful than Protect and Survive and a little more in depth. Worth getting if you are a fan of the cold war. Contains handy hints on how to bomb proof your home which although optimistic is wholly impractical unless you like living in a bunker and toileting in a bucket. Produced to show that the powers that be were doing something to prepare for the unpreparable it is a sobering reminder of how close we came to the brink. One for the collection.

Having grown up in the shadow of the cold war and nuclear destruction I found this a very interesting read especially how close we have been to a nuclear war on a few occasions, also with the troubles in Ukraine, Middle East, and North Korea Nuclear Weapons have been brought back into the Spotlight.

it reminded me of what is like to live under a M.A.D. times.
perhaps it might be needed again, if certain terror groups get hold
of a nuclear weapon.I really hope not
