The perfect complement to our selection of Nuclear era Haynes Manuals - Vulcan Workshop Manual and RAF V-Force Operations Manual

For more than 50 years after the Second World War the nations of the earth stood on the edge of the nuclear precipice, with few doubting that should the Cold War turn hot, neither side could emerge victorious.

Pat Ware describes the background to the Cold War, the East–West arms race, the insanity of ‘mutual assured destruction’ (MAD), preparations taken against the real possibility of nuclear war, and the complete lack of any credible civil defence measures.

He also examines the massive infrastructure and organisation required to maintain a credible Cold War stance.

This book contains sections on the aircraft fulfilling the role of the deterent including pictures of XH558 and XM655
