It gives FAIR treatment to the entire idea of NATIONAL preparedness, the costs involved, the layers of government responsibility, the full spectrum of reasoning in these areas, and just how much minutae is required when thinking....of the unthinkable. Ever hear of "Federal Emergency Plan D"? Its on page ONE of this book. It is THE plan for use AFTER a nuclear war has started. Details beyond belief abound in all aspects of recovery of a nation.
If you CAN get a copy of this book, PLEASE do. Amazon found a used copy for me a couple of years ago, and I now have THREE. Just is case, ya know....
Unlike 'With Enough Shovels', THIS book is open and non-judgemental in its treatment of the power behind our nuclear history and defense complex. Worth the time to find and read.
The look at the massive "Mill Race" conventional explosives test (designed specifically to simulate a nuclear blast, albeit a tiny one) is worth the book alone as the test reveals not only a great deal of technical data but much about the psychology and thinking among the various participants.
Finally the book even addressed quite reasonable psychological issues around a nuclear conflict and wraps up with how a post nuclear conflict society might change and evolve........toward the next war.

Was as described from the seller, and was the book I'd remembered reading years ago.
Fascinating how much preparation went into fighting an unthinkable war.
