Foreword written by Edward Teller (model for Dr Strangelove), which is why I went for this book. Fascinating read covering a thankfully by-gone time. Interesting for the perspective of total fear and terror which underpinned, and still underpins, much of US life. Also the perspective of the nuclear (sorry, not intended) family as a central civilization unit in US culture rather than the usual village, town, settlement more common round the world. The naive assumptions about public order remaining intact in the event of nuclear war are also interesting with the benefit of hindsight (e.g. New Orleans after the levees broke).

Toilet issues are left until quite late in the book, ventilation of your trench shelter is well covered, and there are some top tips for ensuring your babies get their vitamin D (dig a shallow "grave" to protect them from gamma rays from heavy fallout particles, lay them in it for a while in the sun, job's a good-un). It was not obvious to me how the family could travel 60 miles in their full car with the back seats removed, nor without significant traffic control issues, in the event of "few days notice to nuclear strike".

Very deep and detailed insight into the American psyche, from a "Cold warrior" perspective.

I've not read the entirety, and was most interested to read the first few chapters where they look at myths about nuclear war. This section is very interesting in how it portrays scientific and military beliefs about the actual effects of an all-out conflict.

Surviving Nuclear war is not that complicated or difficult-as long as you are far enough away from the blast.A few efforts will stop you dying a horrible death & even those who say they do not want to survive it will feel differently when faced with life or death.For a few quid this is THE BEST BOOK ON THE SUBJECT & I have some other good ones.Hopefully I will not need to use it but it will be to late to get hold of one if it did kick off..........Nuclear war is more likely now than it was during the cold war & if you do not know why then I am not wasting my time explaining it.The only reason the USA & other powers do not do Civil Defense anymore is that they do not want people to survive-see Agenda 21.& the old shelters they sold off are not fit for purpose........You can bet the Elite have brand new huge underground shelters built at the cost of your tax contributions............you will just have to follow the trail of dust to see where they are,after the Elite have disappeared.
& I believe the USA military has orders to weld people into them domestic bought ones,if those inside refuse to come out?Who knows?
The last thing you want when you are sick with Radiation poisoning is it looters or preppers taking the last of you food for your family.Hope it never happens but for £15 I am ready for it!

The best text on nuclear war survival. Well worth the money. Technical details are accurate, innovations are creative, and appropriate supplies are listed. Purchase a contamination meter and a survey meter to augment you gear. Next priority is clean water. Religious wars in Syria & Iraq will lead to a nuclear exchange between Iran striking Israel first with a nuclear missile. Iran probably will launch a Shaab 3 with a North Korean warhead from somewhere in Sudan or Eastern Libya. Iran will attempt to use Sunni extremists as scapegoats but Israel with retaliate against Iran, nevertheless. This will draw in Iran's allies, namely Russia & China. We have 5-15 years before this occurs. Recommend Lorna Byrne's and Sarah Menet's books to validate the scenario described above. Read the message of Akita Oct 13, 1973.
