While I was reading it, I found typesetting issues, and many spelling errors. I was trying to enjoy it, not proofread it, so I'm sure careful scrutiny would uncover even more. Page 191 has at least nine errors! They include: "thier" instead of "their", "their" instead of "there" (twice!), "ver" instead of "very", and "nublear ant-aircraft" instead of "nuclear anti-aircraft".
I really wanted to like this book, but the errors are so numerous and distracting, that I ultimately have to consider it a defective product. If only they had used a spell-checker and a proofreader, this could have been a five-star book. As it stands, it is merely a photo album with some captions might be correct.
This book is a must for anyone interested in nuclear weapons and their deployment. I would have liked a discussion of how the military planned to use these devices, as I feel this would have explained more and given the book an added dimension.

Fine book on the subject. Well researched but some "off the mark" leftist, socialist rhetoric, cleverly added in the text.Published 8 months ago by HMSEconomist
